The SBA introduces two new loan programs for small business owners in 2011. See below for more info.

FRAMINGHAM, MA - According to the 2011 Business Loan Detail for Masssachusetts published by the U.S. Small Business Administration, ("SBA"), Framingham business owners have been approved to receive approximately $2.5 Million in SBA backed loans for 2011.

The SBA does not lend money to small businesses -- instead the agency establishes programs and  guidelines and then guarantees repayment of loans made by local commercial lenders to SBA approved small business owners.

Local small businesses were not the only ones to make a good showing in SBA lists.  Several Framingham commercial lenders were among the Top 20 banks, (and other types of financial institutions), listed in the SBA Massachusetts District Office, FY 2010 Loan Volume Report, which includes SBA 7(a) loans approved October 1, 2010 through February 28, 2011.

Two Framingham banks are in the top 20 SBA 7(a) lenders, while others in the list are larger banks which have a heavy presence in Framingham.

SBA 7(a) loans cover a wide range of programs from financing working capital, new equipment purchases, business expansion, and several programs for veterans / military families, programs for export oriented manufacturing, and two new programs for 2011.

Introduced on February 15, 2011: the Small Loan Advantage program, and the Community Advantage program offer "a streamlined application process", for SBA 7(a) loans up to $250k.  The loan programs are designed to increase small business opportunity in economically distressed communities and under-served areas.
