BiGAUSTIN’s loan funds come from two sources-the Small Business Administration 7(m) microloan program and from private banks. However, underwriting criteria and fiducial responsibility are entirely our own. When we close a loan, the check comes out of our bank account.
BiG is the sole SBA microlending intermediary in our 15-county area. We are also certified by the U.S. Department of the Treasury as a Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI).
