The Small Business Administration (SBA) describes a business plan as a living document that serves as an “essential roadmap to success.”
Programs from the SBA provide funding of up to $2 million, and each Wise Business Bank-Compliant Business Plan meets and exceeds bank and SBA requirements and guidelines.
The SBA offers a variety of programs to small business owners:
-The 7(a) SBA Loan Program
-Rural business loans
-The Express and Pilot programs
-The CDC 504 Loan Program
These programs are designed to assist small businesses with gathering working capital; buying land or a building; paying for repairs, new construction or expansion; and purchasing supplies, equipment, fixtures, machinery, furniture, or materials. The programs can also assist those looking to purchase an existing business.
But no matter which loan program or bank a client chooses, a well-written SBA business plan is a requirement. The SBA requires a business plan that includes certain key features to be submitted along with the application for its programs.
