*The Small Business Administration (SBA) is an office of the federal government. It was created to assist small businesses (as defined by the Small Business Act). Their intent was to increase the ability to compete in international markets by enhancing their ability to export, facilitate technology transfers and compete effectively and efficiently against imports. With the help of the SBA office, we can offer loans to small businesses that might not have the ability to obtain a conventional loan. For more information, please visit the SBA website.
