Small Business Lending Making a Comeback?

It appears that the SBA is showing an increase in the number of government backed loans. In the last quarter of 2009, the SBA backed over 12,000 7a loans as compared to the same quarter in 2008 where the total was only 9,000.

While encouraging, the last quarters numbers are quite a bit lower than the 20,000 loans guaranteed for the same period of 2007. Lets hope the upward trend continues.

According to a CNNMoney.com article on SBA lending, “SBA loans represent a tiny portion of the overall small business lending landscape, but they’re an important barometer of banks’ willingness to extend credit to startups and growing companies.”
