#1 SBA 504 Lender in Eastern Pennsylvania

For a fourth consecutive year, Seedcopa + SeedcoDE has been ranked as the #1 SBA 504 Lender in Eastern Pennsylvania by the U.S. Small Business Administration, attaining the most SBA 504 loans for small- to mid-sized businesses in the region.

According to the SBA Eastern PA District Office’s year-end loan volume reports:

  • Seedcopa supported 29 small business owners in fiscal year 2023 with SBA 504 loans
  • Loans spanned 13 counties: Berks, Bucks, Chester, Dauphin, Delaware, Lancaster, Lehigh, Luzerne, Montgomery, New Castle, Northampton, Philadelphia & York.
  • 34% of businesses assisted were women owned
  • 17 banks partnered with Seedcopa to make the loans possible
  • Total SBA 504 loan projects were $23,226,000

“In a year where interest rates have progressively increased, Seedcopa’s loan volume has remained impressive,” said Seedcopa Managing Director Sherwood Robbins. “This is a testament to the enduring value of the below-market, fixed-interest rates offered by the SBA 504 loan program to small and mid-sized businesses, ensuring that they can continue to buy, build and improve on commercial property, as well as purchase machinery and equipment.”

SBA 504 is the Small Business Administration’s fixed-rate loan program for small- to mid-sized business owners, and such loans often act as a complement to conventional, commercial loans that Seedcopa facilitates through local banks and credit unions. A typical SBA 504 loan structure requires a contribution from the business owner of only 10%. A third-party lender, like a bank or credit union, contributes 50% of the project cost. The SBA-backed portion of the loan is 40%.
