Midwest BankCentre is proud to be an SBA Preferred Lender

  • Preferred lenders have the ability and authority to approve small business loan requests in-house, without requesting approval from the SBA. This cuts the approval time drastically and offers a much more streamlined business process.

  • Preferred lenders can offer loans that are guaranteed for up to 90 percent of $5 million. They offer borrowers who qualify more options, giving them greater freedom in their loan requests. These types of loan requests include purchasing or refinancing owner-occupied real estate, business acquisition loans, construction loans, debt refinances, partner buyouts, and working capital

  • Preferred lenders offer small business owners the ability to acquire a business with as little as 10 percent down.

  • Preferred lenders usually offer market interest rates and repayment terms from seven to 25 years and no prepayment penalties on loans under 15 years, and these loans are also assumable (with qualification).

  • Preferred lenders are reputable and have a proven track record since they have an ongoing relationship with the SBA.

How to Choose a SBA Lender

There are over 2,500 active SBA lenders in the country and the product is identical across lenders. If you are considering who to apply for your SBA loan with, you might want to consider:

  • Local Decision Making: Your loan is reviewed with the decision-makers
  • Working With Lenders That Know Your Market: You bank where you live. The intangible benefits go above and beyond the typical 5 cs of credit.
  • Preferred Lender Status: A Preferred SBA Lender can underwrite loans entirely in-house, which generally streamlines and speeds up the process. Average closings can range from 75-90 days to 45-60 days.
Your lender's goal should be to expedite the SBA loan process to provide faster access to competitively priced capital, helping to spur small business growth. The time is ripe for small businesses to take advantage of government-backed programs that help small businesses tackle perennial challenges, particularly as the economy expands post-pandemic.
