The Small Business Administration, like any part of the government has its problems. In my experience with the SBA and financing, they can be good and easy to work with if you have someone to help you navigate the system. Unfortunately you can also end up with a bunch of trained monkeys like this video shows
. We had several people we worked with that were Katrina victims and they told similar stories about how screwed up things were.
When the recent apartment fire
happened here, the SBA came in last week and set up shop for disaster relief. I'll be interested to see if it's any easier to navigate ashes than it is water.
When they were here they got a parking ticket that cost them $30. Maybe that's why they try to collect on loans that haven't been made - to pay off the parking Nazis in Colorado.
