A note about these North Dakota SBA lenders – People frequently ask us if one of the banks above is 1) on the North Dakota preferred lender list 2) an approved lender in North Dakota, or 3) participating in the North Dakota SBA Express lending program. All these questions revolve around whether a given SBA bank makes small business SBA loans in North Dakota 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 North Dakota. We analyze thousands of SBA loans each year and rank lenders based on recent activity.
