  • Revolving Line of Credit: If you experience peaks and valleys in your business’s cash flow, we offer revolving lines of credit that can help purchase inventory or make volume purchases.
  • Sweep Accounts: Send excess funds from your deposit account at the end of each day to pay down balances on your line of credit.

  • Small Business Administration and Other Government Loans: We offer SBA loans and USDA loans to assist small businesses in overcoming startup costs by guaranteeing a certain percentage of the bank’s loan to a borrower. For more information about the SBA, please visit their website.

Agricultural Loans

Agricultural lending requires an understanding and personal experience of the challenges farmers face every day. Whether you need to cover seasonal cash flow fluctuations or want to expand your farm’s operations, you can depend on the team at First National Bank to be your trusted lending partner.

  • Agricultural Term Loans: Your loan payments can be tailored to meet your seasonal income with term loans that can provide intermediate and short-term financing to help you purchase equipment, livestock, seed, facility improvements and more.
  • Agricultural Short Term Loans: If you have immediate needs because of a lull in your operation’s cash flow, these short-term loans can help cover expenses to make purchases or pay for repairs.
  • Agricultural Revolving Lines of Credit: Draw on a line of credit as you need it by simply transferring funds to your checking account. You’re able to adjust advances and repayments based on your needs. As you pay off the line of credit, the money becomes available to borrow again during the length of the loan.
  • Agricultural Real Estate Loans: Whether you are expanding your farm real estate or want to refinance, you’ll feel comfortable working with lenders who understand your farming operation.
