All these questions revolve around whether a given SBA bank makes small business SBA loans in Michigan 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 Michigan and in Detroit.
