Loans from the Small Business Administration can be a fantastic way to get the money you need to buy or expand a small business or obtain working capital. SBA loans typically range from $150,000 to $5 million and come with friendly terms that help small business owners get access to financing they wouldn’t otherwise qualify for.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of misinformation surrounding SBA loan programs. Some common misconceptions include:

  • The SBA loans money directly to small business owners
  • SBA loans are expensive
  • SBA loans are difficult to do and can take forever
  • SBA loans are for people with low credit scores
  • SBA is a subsidy and costs the taxpayers money
