To Brian and all others:When you submit your FSA loan (or any) application, you should receive a Receipt for Service, if you do not get one, ask for one. The Microloan should take days, or weeks to consider if all of the necessary information is provided. FSA (or your local CDFI) is one of few places where you can secure 100% of the financing needed for your operation, provided your income projections meet the loan payment requirements. If you have a denial, there should be clearly articulated reasons for denial, and appeal rights. There are often non-profit service providers in many communities that help you, at no cost, understand our programs prior to submitting an application, improving your chances. I hope that helps.
