Georgia Banking Company has been designated as an SBA Preferred Lender because of our proven SBA underwriting and processing efficiency. This means:
- Faster loan processing for you and your business
- Competitive rates
- An array of products designed for the needs of small businesses
Flexible SBA financing options are available for small businesses with cash flow or collateral shortfalls. To qualify, your business must be a for–profit, owner–operated company. Your Georgia Banking Company relationship manager will help determine if you qualify and advise what loan to request.
To get started, you will need to meet with your Georgia Banking Company relationship manager to discuss the following information:
- A completed SBA application package
- Three years of business and personal tax returns
- A current financial statement
- A breakdown of project costs detailing how loan proceeds will be utilized
- For commercial real estate transactions: a copy of sales, land, and construction contracts
- For business startups: a business plan (including pro forma financial information) and a market feasibility study
Complementing our SBA loan options, Georgia Banking Company also offers USDA Business & Industry (B&I) loans for businesses, including nonprofits in rural areas. To be eligible for a USDA B&I Loan, your business must be located in a rural community as defined by the USDA Mapping Program. Loan proceeds may be used for working capital, machinery and equipment, buildings and real estate, investment properties as well as other types of debt refinancing.
