Title 13 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 120 Business Loans
Standard Operating Procedures:
SOP 50 10 5 (f) (effective 1/2014) - Lender Development Company Loan ProgramsThe 7(a) Loan Program is authorized by section 7(a) of the Small Business Act and is governed by the regulations outlined in Part 120 of Title 13 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).This multi-purpose business loan program is administered as a deferred participation program where SBA guarantees a portion of the loan made by a Lender. The Lender initiates the loan to a small business and, if the SBA agrees to guaranty the loan, the Lender funds and services the loan. In the event of default, the lender conducts the work-out or the liquidation efforts and the Lender and SBA share in the loss, if any, in accordance with the percentage guaranteed by the SBA.
