SBA Loans

Ready to grow your business?

When you need funding to fuel your small business, First Bank is ready to help.

We help small businesses like yours get government-sponsored loans from the Small Business Administration (SBA), which can help you grow when traditional bank financing may not be an option.


What can I do with an SBA 7(a) Loan?

Whether you’re a new business owner or looking to expand operations, the proceeds from SBA 7(a) loans can help fund almost any aspect of development:

  • Purchase owner-user real estate
  • Start up, purchase, or expand business operations
  • Buy equipment and inventory
  • Obtain working capital
  • Get funding to buy out a business partner

Why should I work with First Bank?

At First Bank, we know the ins and outs of SBA lending, including SBA 7(a) and customized industry loans. We can help you raise long- and short-term working capital, refinance debts and real estate loans, and more. With an SBA loan from First Bank, you’ll enjoy:

  • A simple application process
  • Long repayment terms of up to 25 years
  • Competitive fixed- or variable-rate options
  • Lower monthly payments

More than a decade ago, First Bank helped my husband and I finance our dream. Thanks to their sound, honest business expertise and support, both our restaurant and relationship with the bank are thriving.
