With an SBA loan guarantee, if a borrower fails to repay the loan, the lender can recover 50 to 85 percent of the outstanding loan balance from the SBA. The borrower, however, remains obligated for the full amount due. This reduces the lender’s risk so they are more willing to approve the loan.
Secondly, is a guaranteed loan a secured loan?
