If your business needs a home, Ciena Capital wants to take your call. Formerly a top Small Business Administration (SBA) lender named Business Loan Express, the company switched gears (and its name) in 2008 to focus primarily on commercial real estate loans, financing, and factoring. Businesses can borrow up to $10 million for commercial mortgages as well as real estate investments and SBA long-term financing. Ciena Capital has offices across the US. Business development company Allied Capital acquired the company in 2000. Ciena Capital filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2008.
