Small Businesses Need Business Loans to Survive
the Covid-19
If youre among those small business owners that
need financial assistance because of the current
coronavirus pandemic, you can apply for
a business loan via the Small Business
Administrations loan program. The president of
the United States has advised the SBA to made
low-cost capital available to small businesses
through the Economic Disaster Injury Loan
program. Trump also asked Congress for an
infusion of 50 billion in loans for
businesses. Most states have declared disaster
due to the coronavirus pandemic and all affected
businesses in that State can apply for business
loans via the Economic Injury Disaster Injury
Loan (EIDL) funds.
SBA Coronavirus Disaster Loan Program
With the SBAs Economic Injury Disaster Loans of
up to 2 million, small businesses can offset
their temporary revenue losses because of
coronavirus disaster. For non-profits, the
interest rate is 2.75 on EIDLs and 3.75 for
small businesses that have adequate cash
available or can get funding from other sources
to cover the costs at the loan terms of 30 years
max. The repayment terms are typically based on
the borrowers loan repayment ability. SBA
directly lend the EIDLs to small business owners.
Usually, the SBA does not lend loans directly to
small businesses. The SBA partially guarantees
loans that are made by their network of lenders
through their SBA 7(a) and 504/CDC loan
programs. The SBA has made interest rates lower,
and the legislation that advances funding to the
SBA will perhaps make these loans even more
affordable and widely available.

The Details Coronavirus Business Loan Program
Congress is still adjudicating on how to
distribute the 50 billion request made by
President Trump to small business owners. The
accurate details on how these EIDLs will vary
from typical EIDLs for other disasters still need
to be assessed. It is likely that business
funding for affected businesses by COVID-19 will
come from other SBA loan programs. According to
Senator Marco Rubio, the IMPACT for Small
Businesses Act of 2020 would include authority
for 50 billion in loans through the SBA 7(a)

With this added flexibility and guarantee,
lenders are more likely to extend financing to
small businesses, and waiving of fees will make
the loan process inexpensive for small
businesses. For funding up to 350,000, the
legislation would also not require the borrowers
to submit tax returns, making credit availability
easier as well. The bill has not passed yet, but
businesses could still apply for funding through
the EIDL program.

Direct Loan Program Act of 2020, SBA can make

collateral. Keep in mind that the bill hasnt
passed as of in writing, and details are subject
to change.
