SBA 504 Loans and SBA 7(a) Loans
Consumers National Bank is also an ongoing award-winning provider of SBA Express loans, 7(a) loans and works with local Community Development Centers in issuing SBA 504 loans. SBA loans offer financing options with lower down payments than traditional loans. Some business owners who don’t qualify for a traditional loan may be eligible for an SBA loan.
SBA 504 loans provide financing at below-market interest rates to purchase fixed assets, such as commercial real estate, equipment, and machinery or for new construction and/or building improvements.
SBA 7(a) and Express loans offer general purpose financing; such as buying or expanding a business, building or buying commercial real estate, to make improvements on leased buildings, purchase inventory or equipment or refinance existing business debt and obtain working capital.

When using a bank for SBA financing, there are many benefits to using an SBA Preferred Lender, such as Consumers National Bank.
Banks with the preferred lender designation can make local lending decisions, which streamlines the lending process. You’ll get quicker answers and close your loan faster.
