Hey all,

I've read the HBR guide on searching. The section about SBA repayment left me unresolved on SBA repayment. I understand there are benefits to fully paying off senior debt quickly in order to limit interest expenses. With that said, is it a requirement or universal standard to do so for SBA loans?

I want to understand if a business is meeting it's monthly payments, can it begin to make payments to subordinate lenders and equity holders while the loan balance remains outstanding to the SBA.
