Businesses up to $15 million in net worth and $5 million in net income are eligible. For-profit businesses that meet the SBA's size and industry guidelines*.

*Industry guidelines are stated as maximums that qualify: Any and all owners who own 20% or more of the business are required to unconditionally guarantee. However, anyone with a controlling interest or key role in the business may be required to guarantee.
The SBA does not require a specific level of collateral. Generally, the assets being financed are used as collateral. Personal assets may be required if the assets being financed do not adequately secure the loan. Even if you've already committed your available business and personal assets, you may still qualify for SBA financing.
