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

  • A simple application process
  • Long repayment terms of up to 25 years
