SBA 7 (a)

About SBA 7 (a)

An SBA 7(a) loan is a small business loan that eliminates some of the risk for the lending institution with a partial guarantee made by the Small Business Administration. In other words, the government guarantees part of it, but it is not a business capital loan that is made by the government. Rather, it is made by an approved lender. The lender is able to provide better terms knowing that if the borrower fails to pay back the loan, the SBA will cover a portion of the loaned amount. The application process can be thorough and somewhat restrictive.


  • Backed by the Small Business Administration
  • Low-risk SBA-guaranteed Advance
  • Favorable Loan Terms

Am I eligible for a SBA 7(a) loan?

In order for your business to qualify for an SBA 7(a) loan, it must operate for profit and meet certain size requirements. More precisely, it must be a small business as defined by the SBA. It needs to operate within the United States, and alternative resources must be used before financial help is sought. Furthermore, your business needs to be able to prove its need for business funding. Upon receipt of the loaned capital, the funds must be used for legitimate business purposes. SBA 7(a) loan eligibility is precluded by delinquency on any current debt obligations to the U.S. government.

Ineligible businesses include life insurance companies, businesses that are principally engaged in political activities, and financial businesses such as payday lenders, finance companies, and banks. Speculative businesses and government-owned entities are also ineligible, as are any companies that are engaged in illegal activities. 

Why should I select the Alternative Funding Group for my SBA 7(a) loan?

SBA 7(a) loans are guaranteed by a federal government agency and strict requirements must be met in order for a business to receive one. Traditional lenders such as banks make them available but are generally quite difficult for small businesses to work with. Alternative funding agencies typically have easier, more hassle-free loan applications and approval processes. Their better loan terms and conditions make them a better option for small businesses.

One such agency is Alternative Funding Group which, with its various funding solutions, has provided much-needed business capital to small businesses across the United States. As a trusted business funds provider for companies in a wide range of industries, we do what traditional lenders have failed to do time and again. We can provide your business with funding quickly and easily, and with the best possible terms and conditions. With fairly strict eligibility requirements on their own, SBA 7(a) loans do not need additional obstacles put in place by traditional lenders.

*Due to differing bank policies, it can take several business days before your funds are available.
