How do I apply for an SBA Loan Guarantee?

Answer: 

Whether you are applying for a microloan, SBA guaranteed loan or a traditional bank loan, similar information is required to complete a loan package. You contact a local lender and tell them you want to apply for an SBA guaranteed loan. Be prepared to discuss your proposal in detail. Go to SBA's Loan Package Checklist for detailed items that you will need to bring to lender.
SBA has provided applications to all lenders that actively participate with us. Many forms are also available online at www.sba.gov/library/forms. The lender will then forward your loan application and a credit analysis to SBA.
