SBA Loans with First Business.

At First Business, we’re proud to be the newest Preferred Lender (PLP) for SBA loans. First Business received the prestigious Preferred Lender (PLP) designation from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in recognition for our SBA lending expertise and commitment to providing financial assistance to the small business community.

As a Preferred Lender, we’re now able to offer our clients the fastest and most efficient access to the wide range of lending programs offered by the SBA.  Preferred Lender status is earned by banks with a strong SBA record and demonstrated proficiency in processing and servicing SBA loans.

Types of SBA Loans Available

  • 7(a) Loan

    Provides attractive financing solutions for small to medium sized business, offering loan programs not seen in traditional financing — all backed by a government guarantee.

  • 504 Loan

    Provides a financing solution for the purpose of fixed assets (and related soft costs) that promote the growth and development of the business, including commercial real estate, machinery and buildings.

  • Express Loan

    Provides a smaller loan amount than the 7(a) or 504 loans but with a streamlined and expedited loan process that results in faster turnaround (usually within 36 hours of the application receipt). Follows many of the standards for the 7(a) Loan program.

  • CAPLine Loan

    Helps small businesses meet their short-term and cyclical working-capital needs. It features five lines, each with the specific regulations concerning the use of the loan proceeds.

  • Patriot Express

    Provides the same flexibility of an Express Loan, but is available only to businesses owned and controlled by eligible veterans and members of the military community who want to establish or expand a small business.
