Peoples Bank is proud to offer a variety of Government Guaranteed Loan Programs to our business community. These programs provide attractive benefits to qualifying borrowers and are designed to help small business get the edge they need to succeed.
LIFT Loan Program
The state treasurer’s Linked Investments for Tomorrow (LIFT) program provides capital to small businesses owned and operated in Iowa. Loans approved through LIFT can be used to start a small business or expand a current small business. The LIFT Loan Program can be used to fund land purchases, building improvements, fixtures, machinery, inventory, supplies, equipment, information technology, licenses, patents, trademarks, and copyright fees. The lending team at Peoples Bank can help you determine if you qualify and assist in the application process.
SBA Guaranteed Rural Lender Advantage Program
The SBA Guaranteed Rural Lender Advantage Program provides financing to qualified borrowers with minimum paperwork requirements. Presented by the Small Business Administration, funds can be used to develop, convert, modernize, or repair your business. You can also use this SBA program to purchase and develop land or to finance equipment, machinery, supplies, or inventory. SBA Loans can also be used to refinance existing debt if certain conditions are met. Find out more by contacting the lending team at Peoples Bank.
SBA 504/7A Programs
SBA 504/7A Programs provide financing to new or expanding businesses with attractive terms and rates. The SBA 7A Loan can be used to fund leasehold improvements or provide working capital to a business.
