Interest Rate & Term of Loan
The loan rate is determined by the market at the sale of participation in a pool of government securities. The rate is fixed for the term of the OSBDA/SBA loan. The rule of thumb in projecting a rate is: 10-year Treasury rates, plus 225 basis points. Maturities of 10 and 20 years are available on the 504 debenture, depending on the useful life of assets and the term of the private job creation: 1 per $50,000 in 504 funds or meeting lending participation.
