Survey time again.  We want to hear how the application process is going?  Did you get funded yet? Do you still need help?
Please take the time and answer a few questions.

Have You Applied For Your SBA Loans & Grants,


TIP-Try the bank you do business with first, customers will get priority.


APPLY for Byline Bank SBA Loans HERE

APPLY for Chase SBA Loans HERE

APPLY for First Bank of Highland Park SBA Loans HERE

APPLY for Harris Bank SBA Loans HERE

APPLY for Wintrust SBA Loans HERE

ALSO try these options:

Kabbage- This non-traditional lending option might be at a 5% interest, so a bit higher but if they are still funding it is worth a try.

Nav- This non-traditional lending option might be worth a try.

Accion- This non-traditional lending option might be worth a try. They have an emergency capitol option too. They are focusing on Illinois Small Business Emergency Loan program which has very favorable terms (3% fixed interest rate, 0 payment for first 6 months, 5 year term) and minimal requirements including a 500+ credit score and 1 year in business.
The only documents required are: Q4 2019 business bank statements, a voided business check,  plus any ID verification. even has an
Impact calculator for you to determine staff costs, weather to furlough/layoff or just reduce hours.

LEND- A local small business lender (who aided See Jane Sparkle when I first opened) is another option outside of the SBA world.
LEND is a student-run, micro-finance organization that empowers entrepreneurs and by partnering with Northwestern University and the local businesses they offer micro loans.
