Web Update: “For Lenders” Toolkit Now Live

By Karen Mills, Former SBA Administrator
Published: March 25, 2011 Updated: May 16, 2011

Today, as part of continued improvements to SBA’s website, we launched a new online toolkit to help banks, credit unions and other financial institutions across America who lend to small businesses. Click on “For Lenders” at the top right of any page on, including this one.

For those who are current SBA lenders, you can use the For Lenders site to easily download forms, find a service center, get current rates, and submit both applications and loan packages.

For those who aren’t yet SBA lenders, you can find out how to become one, and you can get the phone number and email of an SBA Lender Relations Specialist in your area who can walk you through the process.

Lenders are vital partners to help entrepreneurs and small business owners grow successful companies and create good jobs. Over the last two years, all of us at SBA have worked hard to strengthen these partnerships. I hope that current and prospective SBA lenders will find this new tool to be useful, giving them better information at their fingertips in order to help America’s small business owners get the capital they need.

I was wondering, how easy is it to get a SBA loan for a small business idea?
I like this tool a lot, I work in the finance and accounting industry and appreciate the work that has gone into creating this tool.
That's a really great news! thanks for its implementation. You know getting proper lenders for us, small busiiness owners, is highly important. In fact, it's a matter of survival of our businesses.
Thanks for making much more useful and user friendly. Apartments for Rent in the Philippines
