About SBA Loans

The U.S. Small Business Administration is a federal agency committed to furthering the growth and development of small businesses. One of the ways it does this is by guaranteeing loans to small businesses made through lending partners nationwide. CHROME is one of those partners.
 
The SBA does not make loans directly to small businesses. Rather, it sets the guidelines for loans, which are made by lending partners nationwide, including Financial Institutions (like CHROME) and economic development organizations. The SBA guarantees a percentage of the loan, minimizing risk to the lending partners and increasing the possibility that small businesses will receive the funds they need.
 
Funds may be used for a wide range of purposes, including:
• Owner-occupied commercial real estate
• Business expansion or acquisition
• Franchise financing/business startup costs
• Financing newly established businesses
• Partner or management buyout
• Inventory purchase
• Equipment, including restaurant equipment and vehicles
• Machinery/furniture
• Debt refinance/working capital
