Small business loans financed through the SBA provide needed access to capital for start-up and existing small business owners across Minnesota.  Today more and more small businesses need capital to support their growth and create jobs. The SBA loan programs should be a key part of every lender’s strategy, a proven tool for attracting new customers with competitive loans for capital expansion and working capital needs, and a source of high quality earnings. Take this opportunity to learn how to maximize your organization’s participation in SBA’s lending programs and build your network of SBA program and industry experts.
