Here are some advantages to SBA Lending:

Advantages to Voyage:

 

  • SBA Loans carry up to a 90% guarantee (loss share agreement) which helps mitigate the risks of some borrowers who we might not otherwise be able toapprove a loan for. If the loan were to go bad, the SBA would cover up to 90% of the losses.
  • The SBA frees up capital for us to make more loans. The guaranteed portion of SBA loans does not count against our total Member Business Lending cap (about $11 million dollars).
  •  We can sell the guaranteed portion of the loan in the secondary market.
