The Small Business Administration also known as SBA is put in place to assist small business owners start or improve their businesses by offering financial assistance. This may include using some of your own savings, using some income from your 401(k) or IRA accounts, taking out a personal loan, using credit cards, or working with a potential investor that can provide you with the financing that you need in order to launch a business.
Meanwhile, the former owner of a business typically either buys and grows a new business or invests for retirement and those invested funds and savings are recycled into to new loans and additional capital expansion through the banks, savings and loans and other investment vehicles typically used by retirees.
Public housing assistance, housing vouchers, and subsidized rental accommodation are a few government programs that are meant to provide safe and decent accommodation to low income families, people with disabilities, veterans, seniors, and the homeless in a quest for a better life.
Also note the guaranteed portion is typically sold on the secondary market (which has recently shut down to almost nothing in September of 2008) so there is more chance for loans to be sold and more money to go back into the coffers of the banks for further lending.
What’s more, banks making SBA loans cannot charge “commitment fees” for agreeing to make a loan, or prepayment fees on loans under 15 year (a prepayment penalty kicks in for longer loans), which means the effective rates for these loans may be, in some instances, superior to those for conventional loans.
