The loans had been held up for months as Congress bickered over the best way to stimulate the troubled small-business sector.

SBA officials scrambled to approve the loans just days after President Obama signed a bill allowing the agency to waive some fees to borrowers and to increase the federal guarantee that backs loans made through the SBA programs.
