SBA Loans

Lowell Five we understand the financing challenges faced by small business owners. If your startup or early-stage company doesn’t qualify for conventional loans, Lowell Five has the ability to offer SBA loans. These government-guaranteed loans offer lower down payments and more flexible terms for businesses that meet the SBA qualifying standards.

We offer multiple types of federal SBA loans: 504, 7(a) and SBA Express to aid with financing for your startup or expansion. Your experienced Lowell Five Lending Officer will help guide you to the right program.

Options include:

  • SBA Express: If you require a fast turnaround, SBA Express Loans have an accelerated approval process but a lower borrowing limit of $350,000.
  • SBA 7(a) Loans: If yours is a newer business with a less established credit rating, SBA 7(a) loan options include both fixed and variable rates. You can get up to $5 million to fund operating expenses, capital equipment, real estate purchases, or improvements.
  • SBA 504 Loans: These loans are ideal for larger, more established businesses that need longer-term financing for expansion, capital expenses, owner-occupied real estate and more. They offer fixed or variable rates, flexible terms and lower down payments than conventional loans.

Small Business Banking Partnership

You also may qualify for a low-interest loan for Massachusetts small businesses. Aimed at helping small firms expand or add employees, we can offer loans up to $1,000,000 through a partnership with the Massachusetts State Treasurer’s Office.

We take pride in watching our clients’ businesses prosper and create jobs in the community. Past loans include a number of minority-owned businesses and those located in moderate to low census tract areas that offer an opportunity for economic growth.
