What’s the difference between an SBA loan and a bank term loan?
SBA loans typically have lower interest rates and longer repayment terms than bank term loans.
An SBA loan, known as the "gold standard" in small business lending, is partially guaranteed by the government. This helps reduce the risk to banks, so they are more likely to make a small business loans.
And as a result of the CARES Act, the SBA will pay 6 months of principal, interest, and any associated fees on any new, eligible SBA 7(a) loan disbursed prior to September 27, 2020. If you’re not eligible for an SBA loan, or need funds more quickly, a bank term loan can be the perfect solution. These loans are often processed faster, and have shorter repayment terms.
