To all our business clients,
SBA, a government agency, will be giving $50 billion in low interest loans to small businesses to help with the loss of revenue during the Coronavirus crisis. There are also rumors that this amount will be increased to $300 billion in the next few days.
Even though the terms are great for businesses that can get the loan, we find the process to be very slow and not all applicants will obtain a loan since there are 30.2 million small businesses in the US. Applicants should not expect fast results from the SBA.
