What is the difference between a SBA and USDA loan?

While the SBA and USDA loans are quite similar, there are a few notable differences between the two loans.

SBA loans tend to be smaller loans, typically no larger than $5 million, whereas USDA loans can be up to $25 million. Because of this, USDA loans tend to include large fees and guarantees as opposed to SBA loans.

You can learn the differences between these two loan types to better help you with your future loans at the Federal SBA website.
