Frequently asked SBA loan questions

The U.S. Small Business Administration’s mission is to help entrepreneurs start, build, and grow businesses. The SBA does not directly provide the loan. Rather, a lender provides the actual loan to the borrower and the SBA guarantees a portion of the loan. The SBA program allows lenders to make loans that may not otherwise meet conventional loan underwriting. Visit to learn more.

As an SBA Preferred Lender, the SBA allows The Bank of Missouri to make lending decisions on their behalf. This can make the process faster for the borrower.
