SBA Loans

Finance Your Frederick Small Business Dreams


A Small Business Administration (SBA) Loan gives you the chance to obtain lending with more flexibility than a conventional business loan. SBA loans often mean extended financing terms, lower payments, and better cash flow, as well as less money down and perhaps little or no collateral.

What is an SBA Loan? It is a loan that is partially backed by the Small Business Administration (SBA), a federal agency. Because these loans are guaranteed by the government, we are often able to provide you with easier qualification, extended terms, and lower down payments than a conventional loan.
