The Small Business Administration's newest boss Maria Contreras-Sweet recently provided her vision  for economic growth, indicating that the smallest businesses will be the mainstay of a new lending initiative.

Contreras-Sweet unveiled a new program the SBA hopes will get more smaller loans to entrepreneurs, primarily via its 7(a) program. Banks originate the loans and benefit from a federal guarantee against default of up to $5 million.

The SBA has been criticized for making too many larger loans and being less accessible to the smaller borrowers and also minorities and immigrants.

According to recent data, four out of five requests for loans from African and Hispanic Americans are for amounts of $150,000 or less, Contreras-Sweet said. With those statistics in mind, the SBA is introducing a new credit scoring system that will let banks make faster decisions on smaller financing requests, and with less paperwork involved. Moreover, the SBA hopes to increase the number of banks that lend through its guaranteed loan program.

"The time has come to reach out to all of our lending partners on small loans and bring new lenders into the SBA fold," Contreras-Sweet stated in a prepared statement.

New Model for Credit Scoring

The new credit scoring system that the SBA will use derives creditworthiness via personal and business credit.

"The SBA’s total credit score will make it easier and less time-intensive for banks to do business with the SBA," Contreras-Sweet said. "This model is cost-reducing and credit-based. It ensures that risk characteristics--not socio-economic factors--determine who is deemed creditworthy."

"By making the process quicker, cheaper, and more intutiive, these reforms will help existing lenders do more small-dollar lending," Contreras-Sweet said. The new scoring system will be available in July. SBA One will start early in 2015.

Client personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan to help with a relative’s new business venture.  After the business failed, Treasury was able to secure a recurring Treasury Offset Program (TOP) levy against our client’s monthly Social Security Benefits based on the claim that he owed over $1.2 million dollars.  We initially submitted a Cross-Servicing Dispute, but then, prepared and filed an Appeals Petition with the SBA Office of Hearings and Appeals (SBA OHA).  As a result of our efforts, we were able to convince the SBA to not only terminate the claimed debt of $1.2 million dollars against our client (without him having to file bankruptcy), but also refund the past recurring amounts that were offset from his Social Security Benefits in connection with the TOP levy.



Clients borrowed and personally guaranteed an SBA 7(a) loan.  Clients defaulted on the SBA loan and were sued in federal district court for breach of contract.  The SBA lender demanded the Client pledge several personal real estate properties as collateral to reinstate and secure the defaulted SBA loan.  We were subsequently hired to intervene and aggressively defend the lawsuit.  After several months of litigation, our attorneys negotiated a reinstatement of the SBA loan and a structured workout that did not involve any liens against the Client's personal real estate holdings.



Client personally guaranteed SBA 7(a) loan for $350,000. The small business failed but because of the personal guarantee liability, the client continued to pay the monthly principal & interest out-of-pocket draining his savings. Client hired a local attorney but quickly realized that he was not familiar with SBA-backed loans or their standard operating procedures. Our firm was subsequently hired after the client received the SBA's official 60-day notice. After back-and-forth negotiations, we were able to convince the SBA to reinstate the loan, retract the acceleration of the outstanding balance, modify the original terms, and approve a structured workout reducing the interest rate from 7.75% to 0% and extending the maturity date for a longer period to make the monthly payments affordable. In conclusion, not only we were able to help the client avoid litigation and bankruptcy, but we also save him approximately $227,945 over the term of the workout.
