In today's economic climate, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) loan programs continue to be one of the primary outlets for credit unions and other lending institutions to provide capital to their small-business members and, at the same time, secure a 50% to 85% loan guaranty from the federal government. While the program can be quite profitable, it is not without risks. Compliance with SBA regulations is mandatory to ensure success and profitability. Due to numerous changes over the last year, it is critical to understand the new rules and current interpretations of regulations in order to make the SBA loan programs work for you.
