Ready Capital Expands Business Lending to Originate 7(a) Small Loans as low as $10,000


NEW YORK, March 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ready Capital Corporation (NYSE: RC) ("Ready Capital") today announced that it has expanded its SBA 7(a) lending program to support the most underserved businesses by utilizing proprietary technology to underwrite loans as small as $10,000. Through its small business lending unit, Ready Capital can now consider loans from $10,000 to $5,000,000 for its 7(a) lending program. The Small Business Administration (SBA) identifies loans smaller than $350,000 as 7(a) Small Loans.

"By expanding our 7(a) capabilities, we can finance an even broader range of eligible businesses, with greater efficiency and transparency," said John Moshier, President of Small Business Lending at Ready Capital. "This capability supports our effort to fulfill the SBA's mission of promoting minority-, woman- and veteran-owned businesses while helping build American communities."

"I am extremely proud of our small balance teams for optimizing our customers' experience by leveraging our game changing technology," said Justin Levy, Head of Small Balance Lending at Ready Capital. "Sometimes SBA 7(a) or conventional loans can be prohibitive to borrowers who need capital quickly, so being able to close loans in a streamlined manner with a focus on the customer journey is a big focus of ours."

In February, Ready Capital funded 41 SBA 7(a) Small Loans, a record month for the company, with several of those loans closing in under 10 business days.
