In addition to conventional loans for businesses, MECU offers long-term business loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration. MECU can provide you financing through two SBA loan programs:

The SBA 7(a) Loan Guaranty Program

One of the SBA's primary loan programs, SBA 7(a) offers loans up to $5 million that can be used for a variety of purposes, including:

  • To purchase commercial real estate
  • To purchase furniture and fixtures
  • To purchase machinery and equipment
  • To purchase additional inventory
  • To refinance existing debt

The SBA CDC/504 Loan Program

The SBA CDC/504 Program involves Certified Development Companies, which partner with MECU to provide long-term, fixed-rate financing to small businesses to acquire real estate, machinery or equipment for expansion or modernization. Borrowers can typically finance up to 90% of eligible project costs with long-term, below-market, fixed interest rates.
