How Does a SBA CDC/504 Loan Work?

The aim is to provide breakthroughs to those people coming from or those who own small businesses. If you’re a startup looking for loans to increase your capital, then the 504-CDC loan should definitely be on your radar. Because the SBA wants to promote business development, it offers many different types of loans according to the capital requirement of the company. For the 504 loan program, there are 3 parties or entities involved. This loan is distributed among these 3 parties. The business owner lends in 10 percent, the bank puts in 50 percent and the CDC puts up the rest or the 40 percent. Factors like payment schedules, loan size and the groundwork also affect the amount of money that you need to pay for your loan. But with a 504 loan, you don’t have to worry as the down payment is really low and repayment time period is quite long. This loan will cover 90 percent of the amount.
