EmpowHer Series: SBA Funding Options for Women Entrepreneurs

Hosted by

U.S. Small Business Administration

WHEN: Tuesday, January 9, 2024

Ladies, are you looking to start a business, or expand your current business but need funding? 

The Small Business Administration (SBA) works with approved lenders and community development organizations to offer SBA-guaranteed loans to help your businesses start, grow, expand, and recover.  

The SBA helps small businesses get funding by setting guidelines for loans and reducing lender risk. These SBA-backed loans make it easier for small businesses to get the funding they need.  

The benefits of SBA-guaranteed loans include: 

  • Competitive terms: SBA-guaranteed loans generally have rates and fees that are comparable to non-guaranteed loans. 
  • Unique benefits: Lower down payments, flexible overhead requirements, and no collateral needed for some loans. 
  • Counseling and education: Some loans come with continued support to help you start and run your business. 

Workshop Topics: 

  • Preparing for a Loan (the 5c’ of credit)  
  • Microloans 
  • 7(a) Loan Guarantee, SBA’s most common loan program 
  • 504 Loans, long-term, fixed rate financing of up to $5 million for major fixed assets 
  • SBA’s online tool, Lender Match (get matched with lenders) 
  • SBA Disaster Loan Programs 

Register today for this empowering training, and let’s learn about Funding option for your business.🌈👩‍💼 #SBAWomenEmpower #SmallBizSuccess
