Business Banking


In addition to our conventional financing options, we are an active participating lender under the loan programs offered by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA Loans). The two main programs are

SBA 7(a) Program

Under the 7(a) loan program the SBA guarantees FNBSM the performance of the loan. FNBSM approves and funds the total loan amount subject to the SBA guaranty. The SBA guaranty ranges from 75% up to 90% of the loan amount depending on the use of proceeds and loan size.

SBA 504 program

Under the 504 loan program the SBA participates directly in the funding of the loan. After calculating the total cost of a project FNBSM finances 50% of the total cost of the project, the SBA finances 40% and the owner invests 10%.
