Hakuna Matata Ribbon Cutting
I was very pleased with my service from Scott Credit Union’s Commercial Lending Department. Everyone was very friendly and walked me through every step that needed to be done to process my business loan. We had a few hiccups along the way but we worked through them together. The process did take longer than we had originally expected, but they were very positive everything would work out, and it did!!! I live over an hour away from the main office and they were even willing to drive to my business location to check out all we had done and it felt so personal to show them what I had worked so hard to achieve – a state licensed day care center in a town that had nothing. I never even had to make a trip to a Credit Union office – we did the closing and everything at my business location. Chris and Natalie were amazing to work with and they are very experienced in SBA loans for businesses. They answered any questions I had right away. If you are thinking about a business or SBA loan, consider Scott Credit Union as an amazing place to go. -April Eichenseer, Hakuna Matata Kid Care Inc.

What are SBA loans?

The U.S. Small Business Administration is a federal agency committed to furthering the growth and development of small businesses. One of the ways it does this is by guaranteeing loans to small businesses made through lending partners. The SBA does not make loans directly to small businesses. Rather, it sets the guidelines for loans, which are made by its lending partners. The SBA guarantees a percentage of loans, minimizing the risk to its lending partners and increasing the possibility that small businesses will receive the funds they need.

Types of SBA loans we offer:

  • 504
  • 7(a)
  • Express Lines of Credit

Advantages of SBA loans:

  • Up to 90% financing
  • Terms up to 25 years
  • Fixed and variable rate options
  • No balloon payments
  • Most for-profit small businesses are eligible

There’s an SBA loan for almost any business need.

  • Commercial real estate purchases
  • Business acquisition or expansion
  • Equipment, inventory or working capital
  • Debt refinancing
