Arizona companies will soon receive over $13 million in SBA small business loans, based on financing approved in the first quarter 2014 by Small Business Finance.
The SBA-504 loans, provided in partnership with local banks, will help 10 small businesses expand and create and/or preserve over 150 jobs. The largest single loan approved was $8.7 million.
Total SBA-504 financing approved in first quarter this year throughout Arizona was $45 million, up from $27 million for first quarter 2013.

The banks that partnered with Small Business Finance on the SBA-504 loans included Alliance Bank of Arizona, Bank of the West, National Bank of Arizona and JP Morgan Chase.
