Small Business Lending and Banking is at the heart of what we do and has been for more than 160 years. Small business is what drives our community and provides 80% of employment to our community workforce. As a community bank, we value that tremendously and want to do all we can to help small businesses succeed.

We have resources to help small businesses get started or expand which includes financing or loans for various needs. One great resource is the assistance of the Small Business Administration (SBA) with an SBA loan.

What is an SBA loan?

The SBA works with lenders to provide loans to small businesses. The agency doesn’t lend money directly to small business owners. Instead, it guarantees a portion of the loan if the client fails to pay it back. The SBA reduces the risk for lenders and makes it easier for them to provide access to capital. That makes it easier for small businesses to get loans.

SBA loans can be used for the funding of your business in multiple areas.

Some uses for SBA loans may include:

Compared to other types of business loans, SBA loans are generally considered a good option for many people who qualify due to their flexibility of use, reasonable interest rates, relatively low down payments, and varying term lengths.
