The Lowest-Cost Working Capital Loans under $250,000
The Community Advantage Loan Program is a loan program that allows businesses to build success in underserved markets, such as businesses who:
• have limited financial resources;
• are located in an underserved community;
• need management and technical assistance;
• are start-ups and in business less than three years; and
• are interested in opportunities for growth.
Community Advantage is an excellent loan choice for new and existing businesses that need between $50,000 and $250,000 in business capital. The loan can be used to start or expand your business. The SBA guarantees a portion of each loan. This makes it possible to extend financing that may not be available through banks. Applicants must show their ability to repay the full loan amount and meet other guidelines to be eligible for a Community Advantage loan.
