The number of loan disbursements is listed, the disbursement figure, percent that failed to pay back the loans, and the charge off percentage (loss) to the lender. These figures help inform lenders and buyers on how well the small business establishments in an industry are financially able to pay back on its small business loans. These loans are guaranteed to be paid back to the lenders by the SBA. Disbursements of five loans or less are not listed. This is the list that the agency provides to loan officers of its most trusted lenders and banks throughout the country.
