SBA Loans

SBA loans have been the key to many successful businesses. An SBA (Small Business Administration) loan is a type of business loan that is guaranteed in part by the U.S. government. SBA loans can offer certain benefits not available with other types of loans.

At BBVA Compass we have an entire team of commercial finance professionals who focus exclusively on helping customers obtain SBA loans. We’ve also earned SBA’s "National Preferred Lender" status.

That’s a fancy government way of saying we’re better at it. What does it really tell you? We have the power to make quick decisions and streamline the entire process, start to finish.

Our SBA Lending Group is a dedicated line of business focused exclusively on lending to businesses like yours.

  • We rank 7th among the top 100 SBA 7(a) bank lenders nationwide
  • We processed more than $250 million in new loan volume last year
