"Reaching out and establishing a working relationship with a SCKEDD representative early was instrumental in staying abreast with the evolving small business disaster assistance programs for the COVID-19 pandemic. The two-way exchange of information and the responsiveness to unending questions was invaluable in achieving timely pursuit of specific programs and early submittal."

SCKEDD Small Business Loan programs

  1. 10-15% cash injection

  2. Low interest rates

  3. Competitive loan terms

  4. Swift disbursement of loan funds

SCKEDD is engaged with their borrowers by providing solutions, consultations and debt relief to their small businesses.

In late March, the SBA relieved borrowers of their loan payments. We worked with our borrowers to notify them of this benefit and created a new disaster relief loan program. The SCKEDD Disaster Relief Program provides immediate cash up to $25k for existing small businesses. To be eligible for this program, applicants must have been in operation for 2 years or longer, have a credit score of 680+ and provide a personal guarantee of the loan. The application is available here.
