About SBA Express Loan

SBA Express Loans have a maximum amount of $350,000 and usually have a 5-7 year term. Loan proceeds can be used for all the same purposes as the SBA Advantage loan.

The SBA allows an Express Loan to be structured as either a straight term loan or as a credit line. At First National Bank Small Business Finance, we do not offer the Express Loan as a stand-alone product, but rather as an additional product along with an Advantage or Grow Loan as a credit line for working capital.

A Flexible Commercial Finance Product

Our typical structure on an Express Loan is to have a Working Capital Line that can be drawn on for two years, with any balance outstanding after two years to be repaid on a 5-year term for a total term of 7 years.

In general, the product advantages of an SBA guaranteed loan are:

  • Lower Equity Injection requirements to keep more working capital in the business
  • Longer-term loans to keep required payments lower every month
  • Fully amortizing loans – no balloon payments or refinance required
  • Combine many uses of funds into one loan (Advantage Loan)
  • No loan covenants that may impact business operations
