U.S. Small Business Administration-Backed Loans

Less money towards interest means more money for growth.

Small businesses are at the heart of local communities and drive local economies. That’s why Northern Bank is proud to offer small business loans backed by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). They help to ensure that small businesses can compete and succeed by offering low interest rates to individuals with credit who want to start, purchase or grow a small business. That means more of your money can go towards your business goals! The advantages of an SBA loan don’t end there. SBA small business loans offer a host of other features that make them more affordable and easier to repay.

Longer repayment terms, like up to 25 years for commercial real estate, up to 10 years for a business acquisition or start-up, and up to 15 years on equipment

No balloon payments
