SBA 7(a) loans can be used for many business purposes, including buying new equipment if you need upgrades, consolidating debt, and more. The flexibility of SBA 7(a) loans is one of the reasons they are popular for small businesses and startups.

  • Financing new office equipment including:
    • Furniture
    • Computers
    • Equipment used to operate your business
    • Vehicles used to operate your business
  • Consolidating business debt

As you can see, there are plenty of uses for SBA 7(a) loans—and you can get access to funds for these purposes when you apply for funding through BHG Financial’s wholly-owned subsidiary Fund-Ex Solutions Group. Your SBA 7(a) loan can help you accomplish various business goals, from consolidating commercial debt to opening a new location or buying real estate.

Did it turn out that your desired use of funds isn’t covered by an SBA loan? Don’t worry. Lenders, including us, provide other business and personal financing options that can help with your specific needs.

For example, if you’re looking to acquire a business and need cash quickly, an SBA 7(a) loan’s turnaround time may not be ideal. However, at BHG Financial, we also provide business loans that can give you the funds you need in as few as 3 days*—helping you take advantage of opportunities as soon as they present themselves.
