    CAPITAL ONE just helped me get an SBA loan......7% (variable) no pre-payment penalties. Check them out, they made the process very simple for me and presented a package to the SBA.....One thing though.....make sure you have all your information ready...Licensing, Property Insurance, Equipment lists (serial #'s), Lease agreements, Business Certs, Tax #'s...etc etc. Entire process took about 30 days.
