SBA Loans

Consumer Login



We know that the cost of starting, growing, or acquiring a new business can stretch beyond what you have saved. That’s why we partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to offer SBA Loans that assist small business owners in our communities.

Here’s how it works - The SBA partners with qualified lenders like Banterra to provide loans for small businesses by guaranteeing a portion of the loan funds. The SBA doesn’t lend money directly to small business owners, but they provide a program that allows lenders to make loans that may not otherwise meet conventional loan underwriting.

Benefits of SBA Loans

  • Loans are not collateral based
  • Credit on reasonable terms when it may not otherwise be available
  • Longer term and amortization options
  • Lower payments to help improve cash flow
  • Competitive interest rate - fixed or variable
  • Flexible terms and conditions
  • Lower down payments
  • No balloon payments (a large payment due at the end of your loan term)
  • Flexibility of use
  • Loan can be projection based

Use of an SBA Loan

  • Ownership transitions, including partner, family, long-term employee, outsider, and employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) buyout
  • Working capital needs beyond support from a normal borrowing base
  • Purchase machinery, equipment, furniture, fixtures, and perform leasehold improvements
  • Debt refinancing to improve cash flow
