HomeStreet Bank provides the actual loan to the business borrower. However, the U.S. SBA guarantees a portion of the loan, usually 50% to 85%, depending on the loan program. With the SBA partial guarantee, lenders are more confident in making the decision to finance a business client's needs, regardless of the age or size of the business.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is a federal agency committed to helping small businesses succeed and grow by guaranteeing loans to small businesses made through lending partners. HomeStreet Bank SBA loans provide greater flexibility in repayment terms and lower monthly payments.
