The Facts about the Microloan Program for Entrepreneurs
The Microloan Program combines the resources and experience of the U.S. Small Business Administration with those of locally based nonprofit organizations to provide small loans and technical assistance to small businesses. Under the Microloan Program, the SBA makes funds available to qualified nonprofit organizations, which act as intermediary lenders. The intermediaries use these funds to make loans of up to $35,000 to new and existing small businesses. The intermediaries also provide management and technical assistance to help ensure success.
