According to Scarborough and Cornwall (2016) SBA loan


guaranty program is a program that lends money with a high default


rate. Although the SBA is a treacherous program. Lenders are willing to


face the treachery because the SBA is willing to gather majority of the






The article I read is titled ?What you need to know about SBA


Loans?. The article talks about how the SBA offers the most


competitive loans available, and explains that the Small Business


Administration does not actually lend out money. The SBA is a federal


institution which teams up with lenders, and the lenders are the ones


who actually lend money. One of the main reasons the SBA does not


lend money directly is because of the cost to the consumer. More


money would have to go to the agency for employee and lending


money. The article also covers the three main programs, 7 (a) loan


program, CDC/504 program and microloans. And explains how and who


can qualify for them. One thing this article stresses it the amount of


time it could take before a loan is obtained.




The Small business administration was established in 1953 for


the purpose of helping small distributions get funding and other


assistance. According to the author ?loan guaranty program is the


SBA?s flagship loan program. More than 3,500 private lenders in the


United States make SBA loans to small businesses.? Scarborough, N. M.


& Cornwall, J. R. (2016) This is very helpful to small distributions who


need money for equipment, to expand or buy real estate, to purchase


inventory or to build up capital. Hecht, J. (2016 ) states ?The


government guarantees a portion of your loan?usually between 75%


and 85% so that, even if you can?t make your repayments, the lender


only loses a small amount.? SBA offers resources that assist veterans


and disabled veterans in owning and operating their own businesses.


So, how does a small businesses owner get an SBA loan? The


first think they should do is go to the SBA website and get the


checklist. Then the business owner or potential owner should gather all


needed documents. The next step is to call the local SBA district office;


they would then provide you a list of local lenders. Once a business


gets paired with a lender it may take some time before funding is


received. The SBA has strict rules that must be adhered to. And in some cases credit has to be excellent. A lender can also extend the


loan repayment type so a business owner does not owe any interest.


Small businesses account for a large part of the United States GDP,


about 50% so it is important to help small businesses survive and


thrive; by offering low interest loans. ?Insufficient or delayed financing


is the second-most common reason for business failure,? Mills (2016)


Bible Verse


According to Proverbs 22:7 (ESV) states ?The rich rules over the poor,


and the borrower is the slave of the lender.? In modern time, I would


interpret this verse, breaking it down into two parts. The rich do rule


over the poor, because the rich are the once giving people jobs. And


the borrower would be considered a slave because you have to pay


back a loan you receive. So, until that loan is repaid you are actually


working for the lender.

DefinitionThe text defines bartering as, ?the exchange of goods and services for other goods and


services rather than for cash? (Scarborough & Cornwall, pg. 472,2015).


SummaryThe article, ?Using Barter to Help a Business Succeed? describes how different


business work together for the common goal of bettering their businesses while


conserving as much financial resources as possible. The author talks about bartering


groups to join that involve many different businesses. She explains why groups are


beneficial using a usual product, fish, as the example. Groups allow you do barter with


other marketing items such as shirts or pens instead of your product. A barter group is


like a giant club made up of various business with ?barter dollars? and ?bank accounts.?


(Goodman, 2012). With those features individuals are able to use their ?barter dollars?


with other merchants even if they didn?t directly barter with one another.




Bartering is a trade that goes back well into history; it has essentially been done


since God created the earth. Bartering throughout history was peoples? livelihood. They


depended on being able to trade with one another for the items that were essential for


living. Bartering in today?s society has came a long way since its roots. Bartering is no


longer people?s way of life but simply a way to save money. From a new business stand


point bartering is a great way to get your name out there as well as be cost efficient in


receiving other companies. One example of bartering a local clothing franchise and a


photographer. The photographer uses the clothing provided by the clothing store and the


store is able to use his pictures in return. In my opinion bartering needs to happen more


in today?s society. Bartering groups are not very common especially in small


communities. Being able to be part of a group of business that are in an agreement to


work together for a common goal is beneficial for the companies. Bartering is good,


even if the economy is down, ?you don?t have to make a huge capital outlay every time


you need services. You just swap something? (Goodman, 2012). When a new business is


in its early stages it can sometimes be difficult to afford everything needs to make the


business successful. Joining a barter group gives a business the freedom to obtain


various goods and services without having to come up with excessive amounts of capital.


In the Bible we are taught to avoid debt when possible. Proverbs 22:7 states, ?the rich


rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender? (ESV). Having the


opportunity to barter alleviates the amounts of debt needed. The small businesses are


able to make their profits faster because they were able to save money up front. Annotated Bibliography
