Hello Max,

SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans offer up to $2 million in assistance for a small business. The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for nonprofits, and repayment can extend up to 30 years.

The loan can only be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. However, only small businesses and nonprofits that are unable secure other loan funding are eligible.
