How do I fill out the application form for an educational loan online?
Depending on which country you are in and what kind of lender you are going for. There are bank loans and licensed money lenders. If you are taking a large amount, banks are recommended.

Is there any way to get out of an SBA loan?
Yes, there is a way to “get out of” an SBA Loan. There is a process called SBA Offer In Compromise (OIC). The OIC is specifically designed to give small business owners who have failed a chance to settle their personal guarantee. Once your business closes, and all the business assets have been liquidated, the bank/SBA will consider a settlement if you can demonstrate that you lack the ability to repay the debt in full. They require complete financial disclosure in order to determine whether an OIC is warranted.I have posted the most comprehensive post ever written on the entire SBA OIC process on my website.

When I fill out a loan application form at a bank, how does the bank know if I am lying about my total assets and liabilities?
Your credit report has more than the score, because part of what makes up you score is the amount of liabilities and how they are handled. Liabilities that will show areCar payments and balanceCredit cardsDepartment store cardsStudent loansChild support/alimony Judgements                       And many more.For assetsBank statementsBrokerage accounts401k statements etc.If an applicant is sufficiently strong (20% down-payment and a few months mortgage payments reserved) then all assets are usually not verified.But as a mortgage broker I've even used a car and boat title to boost an otherwise shaky application.
How does an SBA loan work? How does the SBA decide whether or not to guarantee a loan?
So, essentially, SBA loans are the best option for small business borrowing, because they are partially guaranteed by a government entity— the U.S. Small Business Association. Because of this partial guarantee, the interest rates are low, the payment terms are long, and the loan amounts are high.That being said, SBA loans are the most difficult type of small business loans to qualify for. Your business will need 2+ years of business, 640+ credit, and $100,000+ in annual revenue.You can find more details about SBA loans here:Where to Find the Best SBA LoansHope this helps!

How many days does it take to obtain an SBA loan?
While SBA Loans are certainly one of the best loan options for small businesses, you’ll need to keep in mind the paperwork and processing that you’ll be required to do in order to apply for it. This will take a good bit of time and energy, and even after submitting this paperwork, you will have to wait for the lender to undergo a hefty amount of processing on their side as well.With all of this delay accumulated, you’ll be able to obtain an SBA loan within 3 weeks at the very least. Compare this to a minimum of 2 days of processing for a term loan or a minimum of 1 day of processing for a short-term loan.In the end, you’ll have to decide whether you want to prioritize the perks of an SBA loan (low down payments, long payment terms, and reasonable interest rates) or the celerity with which other, more costly loans are granted.Hope this helps, and good luck with your business endeavors!
