Small Business Administration Loans

The Small Business Administration (SBA) offers a variety of loan programs to small businesses. The SBA doesn’t disburse loans directly; rather it provides lenders with a Federal guarantee for a defined maximum and minimum amount. Because of this, the terms of an SBA loan will vary based on lender-specific guidelines.

For the most part, these loans have lower down payments and longer terms. One of the most popular programs is the SBA 7(a) loan, which was established to assist existing small businesses and start-ups obtain financing for various general business purposes.

The most common uses of loans under this program include working capital, machinery and equipment, and commercial real estate.

Franchise Loans

For aspiring entrepreneurs, buying an existing franchise has many advantages versus starting a new business from the ground up. Lenders are also more willing to approve a loan for an existing company with a proven track record, than for a new business. Having a strong business plan, liquid assets, and good credit history will increase your chances of getting approved for a franchise loan.

Commercial banks, alternative financing companies, and the SBA offer funding programs for the purchases of franchises. When reviewing a loan application, they’ll analyze the financial stability, business model, and overall financial performance of the parent company.

For this reason, it’s important to do your research before applying for a franchise loan. Most successful franchises
will have an established history of profitability, effective internal management systems, and a strong demand from a large target market.
