Borrowers, do you want to know if you are making smart financing decisions? Your local SBA Resource Partners can help you.  The SBA does not lend you money, they reduce the risk of commercial lenders to provide you financing.  The webinar will present the SBA guidelines set for all its loan programs offered by banks, community development financial Institutions, and SBA micro-lenders. It will also tell us how borrowers can lower their risk to access capital and get help for an SBA Guaranteed Loan.
