An SBA 7(a) Loan is the most popular small business loan issued by a private lender and backed by the Small Business Administration. Due to flexible repayment terms and competitively low interest rates, an SBA 7(a) Loan is a very attractive financing option for small business owners, which can be used for a variety of business purposes, including working capital, business expansions, acquisitions, partner buyouts, real estate purchases, equipment, refinancing and more.
