These loans are also available to non-profit organizations. The loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid due to the economic impact of this pandemic. The loans provide a maximum of 30 years for long-term repayment. Terms are determined on a case-by- case basis, based on each business owner’s ability to repay. Small Business Administration:
