SBA Books Third Highest Lending Year in 2013, Continuing Trend

In a trend that started in 2011, the U.S Small Business Administration (SBA) announced in a statement at the end of October that it had its third highest year of lending in FY 2013 with $29 billion lent to small businesses. The last two biggest lending years for the SBA immediately preceded this one. In FY 2011 and 2012 the agency lent more than $30 billion, its two highest years so far.

“During the fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, SBA loan approvals supported $29.6 billion (54,106 loans) to small businesses in its two main loan programs, 7(a) and 504, compared to $30.25 billion (53,848 loans) in FY 2012 and $30.5 billion (61,689 loans) in FY 2011,” the SBA statement said.
