For financial assistance programs authorized by section 7(a) and (b) of the Small Business Act and Title V of the Small Business Investment Act of 1958, SBA regulations require any loan guarantor and individual owners of the small business applicant to submit a personal financial statement to provide information on their assets and liabilities. See, 13 CFR 120.191 and 13 CFR 123.6. The information is necessary for the Agency, the participating lender or CDC to make informed decisions concerning the applicant's repayment abilities or creditworthiness.
For the 8(a) Business Development (BD), Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), and Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) programs the information is necessary for SBA to determine if the applicant or participant meets the economic disadvantage requirements to participate in these programs.
