The program was' authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which became law in February. ARC loans are being offered by various Small Business Administration lenders until September 30, 2010, or as long as the money lasts. How to qualify To qualify for an ARC loan, the business must have been in operation for at least two years and have financial statements or tax returns showing profitability or a positive cash flow in at least one of the past two years. The business must be able to project sufficient cash flow to meet its business-related debts in the fu- ture. ARC loans aim to help small-business people pay down or refinance existing business loans so they can redirect cash flow from making loan payments to investing in their businesses. The borrower must not be more than 60 days past due on any loan being paid with ARC funds. The business owner also must prove immediate financial hardshi p in the form of declining sales, fro- zen credit or difficulty meeting payroll or payments on rent or loans. ARC loan proceeds can be used to make up to six months of principal and interest payments on mortgages, secured and unse- cured loans, lines of credit and credit cards if the debt was in- curred for business purposes. The loans are interest-free to the bor- rower and have no SBA fees at- tached to them. NO payments are required for the first 12 months. Where to go Century Bank is among the SBA lenders in New Mexico now offering ARC loans to small busi- nesses within its trade area: Santa Fe, Espafiola and Albuquerque. Other banks that 'have made ARC loans in New Mexico are Bank of the Southwest, First New Mexico Bank Las Cruces, Valley National Bank and Western Bank. Century Bank participates in the SBA's many loan programs, including the Express Program, which funds up to $350,000, and Patriot Express Program, which can finance up to $500,000 for veterans, spouses of veterans and people transitioning out Of active duty with the military into a small-business venture. The 7a program is intended for financ- ing larger amounts ---7 up to $2 million -- or loans that otherwise might not qualify under the Ex- press or Patriot Express programs. The SBA 504 Program is specifi- cally designed for businesses wanting to purchase real estate and equipment.
