The California Loan Guarantee Program enables a small business to obtain a term loan, line of credit or letter of credit when it cannot otherwise qualify for a loan. The program provides a lender with the necessary security, in the form of a guarantee, to approve a credit facility. The guarantees are issued on behalf of the State by the San Fernando Valley Financial Development Corporation (SFV – FDC). SFV – FDC primarily services the Northern Los Angeles and Eastern Ventura Counties but may service any request within the State of California. The California Loan Guarantee Program benefits both Lenders and Borrowers. The program allows a business to not only obtain a loan it could not otherwise obtain, but to establish a favorable credit history with a lender. With that, the business may obtain further loans on its own, without the assistance of the program. Lenders will benefit from the ability to establish new lending relationships, which can be fostered into long-term banking clients.
