SBA Loans

Open Sign Icon
SBA loan programs can help you start or expand a small business. SBA loans can be used for your business’s real estate, equipment purchases and working capital. They are government-guaranteed loans built to help small business owners succeed through smaller down payments, no minimum loan amount and flexible repayment periods. Because the terms of the loan are typically tailored to meet the specific needs of each business, it is recommended that you contact a member of our commercial lending team to discuss the terms and rates available to you.
SBA loans are in fact bank loans, so you can apply through a local SBA lender like First Bank. Due to the tendency for small business ventures to be risky in nature, government backing makes it possible for small business lenders like First Bank to take a chance on new and smaller companies. This crucial funding allows companies to invest in their business in a variety of ways.
From starting to expanding your business, there are many ways to use an SBA loan. 7(a) Loans, which are the most general programs, can be used for physical purposes such as expanding or renovating your space, buying land or commercial properties, equipment and fixture purchases, inventory acquisition and lease-hold improvements. You can also use a 7(a) loan to improve cash flow through debt refinance, a seasonal line of credit or working capital. SBA 504 loans can also be used for funding assets such as equipment or real estate, but the interest rate is fixed instead of variable and the terms may vary compared to a 7(a) loan.
