SBA 7(a) Loan Eligibility

All applicants must be eligible to be considered for a 7(a) loan. All businesses that are considered for financing under SBA's 7(a) loan program must: meet SBA size standards, be for-profit, not already have the internal resources (business or personal) to provide the financing, and be able to demonstrate repayment. Eligibility factors for all 7(a) loans include: size, type of business, use of proceeds, and the availability of funds from other sources.

In order to get a 7(a) loan, the applicant must first be eligible. Repayment ability from the cash flow of the business is a primary consideration in the SBA loan decision process but good character, management capability, collateral, and owner's equity contribution are also important considerations. All owners of 20 percent or more are required to personally guarantee SBA loans.
