- SBA loans offered from banks in the SmartBiz lending network have a variable rate of Prime Rate plus 2.75% to 3.75%.
- We conduct a soft credit pull that will not affect your credit score. However, in processing your loan application, the lenders with whom we work will request your full credit report from one or more consumer reporting agencies, which is considered a hard credit pull and happens after your application is in the funding process and matched with a lender who is likely to fund your loan.
