Kayla Tausche from CNBC reported that loans likely to be available by mid-next week. Rob Nichols, the president and CEO of the American Bank Association, said, “We should all remember that this is an unprecedented expansion of SBA lending that will take some time before it’s fully functioning.” In English, this means that banks need more time to fully digest what they are supposed to be doing.

Despite some lenders “not being ready to hand out money” through this program, as of early Friday morning, April 10, lending institutions made more than 2,300 loans worth more than $889M, according to Jovita Carranza, SBA administrator on Twitter,

Steve Munchin, US Treasury Department Secretary, said on Saturday after giving more guidelines to SBA lenders and other federally insured depository institutions that lenders will be able to “get the money out same day.”

Realistically, “same day” may be the beginning or middle of next week.

The bottom line message here…APPLY AND BE PERSISTENT!!!
