SBA extends Microloan program to all 159 counties
Placeholder Image

The Small Business Administration’s Microloan program is now available for all 159 counties in Georgia.        

In today’s economy, a small business may need help, but in some cases cannot qualify with a bank as in the past.  Georgia’s small businesses can still apply for a micro loan at certified lenders in the state. These loans are available from $500 to $35,000. And rates vary upon credit and market risk.

The loan funds can be used for the expansion of an existing business or for the creation of a start-up business. In addition, the funds may be used for working capital as well as for the purchase of equipment or inventory. They cannot be used for personal expenses or solely for debt consolidation.

Loans are now available in all Georgia counties. There are five SBA Micro Lenders in Georgia that cover the state.

The SBA Micro Lender for Effingham County is the Small Business Assistance Corporation.
