Due to the impacts of COVID-19, small businesses and non-profits who have been severely affected are currently eligible to apply for low-interest loans. These loans are direct loans through the U.S. Treasury and not a bank or other financial institution.
The U.S Small Business Administration’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million that can give important economic support in times where they have experienced temporary loss of revenue.
HOW MUCH CAN I BORROW?
- Eligible entities may qualify for loans up to $2 Million Dollars
- The interest rates for this disaster are 3.75% for small businesses
- 2.75% for not profit organizations
- Terms of the loan up to 30 years
HOW CAN I USE THE LOAN FUNDS?
These working capital loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable, and other bills that could have been paid had the disaster not occurred. The loans are NOT intended to replace lost sales or profits for expansion.
To apply for an SBA loan, you will need to complete the following:
- Electronic Loan Application
- Tax Authorization
- Most recent Business Tax Return
- Personal Financial Statement
- Schedule of Liabilities
- Other information as requested thru the SBA
FACT: Loans under $25,000 do not require collateralization.
That means that if you were to borrow $25,000 on an unsecured basis for up to 30 years at 3.75%, your estimated monthly payment would be approximately $116.00 per month, with the first payment starting one year from now. For some small businesses, this may help to cash flow your business in the short term.
