(1) Minimum capital (unimpaired paid-in capital, surplus, and undivided profits) shall be in the amount of five hundred thousand dollars or five and one-half percent of total assets, whichever is greater, or a greater amount should the director determine that applicant's business plan or economic conditions require a greater amount to conduct the business of a 7(a) lender. The director may consider and include the net worth of any corporate shareholder of the applicant if the shareholder agrees to unconditionally guarantee the liabilities of the applicant and that shareholder agrees to the reporting requirements set forth in WAC 208-556-060.

(a) The volume and mix of the existing loan portfolio, including the volume and severity of nonperforming loans and adversely classified credits, as well as an analysis of net charge-offs experienced on previously classified loans.
(b) The extent to which loan renewals and extensions are used to maintain loans on a current basis and the degree of risk associated with such loans.
(c) The trend in loan growth, including any rapid increase in loan volume within a relatively short time period.
(d) General and local economic conditions affecting the collectibility of the licensee's loans.
