SBA 7a CAPline Loans

Small Business Administration CAPLines

The SBA CAPLines program is meant to give small businesses access to lines of credit, both revolving and fixed for short term as well as seasonal needs. Most CAPLine loans must be fully collateralized by borrower assets. CAPLines go as high as $5 million, of which up to $3.75 million is guaranteed by the SBA.
