The Basic 7(a) Loan Guaranty is the SBA’s primary business loan program to help qualified start-up and existing small businesses obtain financing when they might not be eligible for business loans through normal lending channels. It is also the agency’s most flexible business loan program, since financing under this program can be guaranteed for a variety of general business purposes.
Loan proceeds can be used for most sound business purposes including working capital, machinery and equipment, furniture and fixtures, land and building (including purchase, renovation and new construction), leasehold improvements, and debt refinancing (under special conditions). Loan maturity is up to 7 years for working capital, 10 years for equipment and generally up to 25 years for real estate purchase or improvements.
