Chris Hurn has written an interesting piece on huffingtonpost.com predicting bad times ahead for the SBA 7(a) loan program. Read the full article here.
Hurn notes "You don't have to be a banking-school trained lender to understand the common sense rule of 'having skin in the game.' Get a real equity contribution from a small businessperson on their loan, and you can sleep better at night knowing your default risk has been mitigated some. Give them a pass because they spent more time in some ivory tower than you did, and don't be surprised if they walk away from your loan when the going gets tough."
Based on our firm's experience, Hurn's observations are not quite accurate. First and foremost, the reason this law firm exists is to primarily help people who signed a personal guarantee in support of their SBA backed loan. This means that as a personal guarantor, your wages, your Social Security, your tax returns and possibly your real estate is at risk if your small business defaults on its SBA loan. So in just about every case there is some "skin in the game". Secondly, most if not all small business owners go over and above to try to keep their businesses going including investing life savings and borrowing from family. Most borrowers aren't quick to give up the ship considering what they have invested and that the small business is their livelihood.
