SBA loans – Alaska

A note about these Alaska SBA lenders – People frequently ask us if one of the banks above is 1) on the Alaska preferred lender list 2) an approved lender in Alaska, or 3) participating in the Alaska SBA Express lending program. All these questions revolve around whether a given SBA bank makes small business SBA loans in Alaska and can they process SBA loans quickly. The answer is yes, of course. These are not the small banks that only make a few SBA loans a year and do not understand the SBA 7(a) loan program. These are the banks that have made the most SBA loans in Alaska. We analyze thousands of SBA loans each year and rank lenders based on recent activity. We would be remiss if we did not mention that although many banks will only lend in certain geographies, there are a handful of extremely aggressive nationwide SBA lenders who will lend anywhere. These lenders understand the SBA program as well as anyone and move very quickly, so we recommend not limiting your search to your home state. If you utilize our lender match tool, we can find you suitable SBA banks based on your geography, industry, and company and size at no cost or obligation to you to save you valuable time.
