Here’s a few things you should know about SBA lending

Do you need financial support for your small business? Here are ways you can secure an SBA loan for your business.

  1. Have a business plan.

You’ll first want to make sure that you have your business plan polished and ready to go. Inside your business plan, you should include an executive summary, company description, products or services, market analysis, marketing strategy and your financial plan for your business.

  • Vet your business idea.

Have you pinned down a solid business idea? Be sure to identify a problem and how your business can take a better approach to solving that problem. You may consider doing market research or asking entrepreneur experts to help you identify your solution to a problem.

  • Weigh in your loan options.

Sometimes an SBA loan may not be the best fit for your small business. There may be conventional loans that may work better. Heritage Bank offers a range of lending solutions, including business lines of credit, equipment loans and commercial real estate loans.

If you’re ready to take your small business to the next level, be sure to speak with Heritage Bank’s SBA lenders. Heritage Bank specializes in small business banking, and our lenders have closed SBA and conventional loans in a range of industries.

Heritage Bank is one of the region’s largest and fastest growing community banks. We specialize in small business banking, offering entrepreneurs the experienced bankers, Treasury Management products and high-touch service they deserve alongside the digital banking tools that make everyday banking simple and convenient.
