What is an SBA 504 Loan? PDF Print E-mail

SBA loan must provide US jobsThe United States Government formed the Small Business Administration (SBA) in 1953 to help businesses get established and grow. The SBA 504 Loan Program is an economic development program that offers small businesses another way to get business financing, while promoting business growth and job creation. As of February 15, 2012, the SBA 504 Loan Program has provided $50 billion to help small business owners while creating over 2 million jobs.


The SBA 504 loan program is a partnership that includes the SBA, the borrower, and the lender; each of these "partners" provides a portion of the financing. Up to 40% of the total project cost is provided through one of the SBA’s Certified Development Companies (CDC’s), funded through an SBA-guaranteed debenture. Up to 50% is provided by the commercial lender through World Net Capital I. The borrower has to contribute at least 10% of the project cost. The commercial lender’s portion of the loan does not carry the same benefits as the 504 loan program. The lender determines the interest rate and term of it's 50% portion, and it does not come with the federal guarantee.
