    Where The Money Is!

    SBA Loan Opportunities

    Did you know that your local Small Business Administration could help you get

    a head start on building a successful business? The SBA offers many loan

    opportunities for small businesses. Many people may think “It’s just too difficult

    to receive assistance in starting or expanding a business.” Although, nothing

    comes easy in life, there are organizations that can help you reach your

    business goals such as the SBA. For more information on SBA loan

    opportunities, please visit https://www.sba.gov and click on Loans and Grants.

    Other Great Place to Seek Funding is the:

    Small Business Capital Fund of MS, Inc.

    SBCF typical borrower is a business owner who has difficulty in obtaining

    financing from a traditional bank because of derogatory credit, insufficient

    management skills, and inadequate collateral of lack of personal wealth to

    meet the equity investment requirement. They provide most types of

    business loans that include funding for: equipment, inventory, accounts

    receivable or contract financing, real estate, working capital, start-up capital or

    interim financing.

    SBCF also administers the US Department of Transportation sole lender in the

    state. They administer the USDOT’s Short Term Lending Program “(STLP”).

    This program is a loan guarantee program. Approved lenders, such as SBCF,

    offer these loans, which provide up to a 75% federal government guarantee.

    The STLP is designed to assist Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (“DBE”) and

    Small Disadvantaged Businesses (“SDB”) seeking access to working capital in

    order to obtain transportation–related contracts receiving USDOT funding.
