Uncle Sam's Money and How to Get a Micro Loan

 by: Rebecca Game

The US Governement has a MicroLoan Program that provides small loans to new start-up companies, newly established businesses, or loans to help small business growth concerns.

Under this government loan program the Small Business Administration, (SBA) will make funds available to nonprofit community based lenders (also known as intermediaries) which, in turn will make loans available to eligible borrowers in amounts of up to $35,000.

You will submit your application to a local intermediary and then all the credit decisions are made at a local level.

Terms:

You can get a micro loan for a maximum term of 6 years. The loan terms will vary according to how much you are borrowing, what you are using the loan for, and your needs as a small business owner.
