Small Business Administration (SBA) Loans

For current small business owners and budding entrepreneurs looking for secure funding to launch or upgrade their businesses.

What is a Small Business Administration (SBA) Loan?

Backed by the US Small Business Administration, SBA term loans and lines of credit provide secure funding options with lower down payment options as well as more flexible qualification requirements and repayment terms—for small businesses who may not qualify for traditional commercial financing. SBA loans can be used for many small business needs including working capital, business expansion, and property and other large purchases.

Like traditional commercial loans, you can apply for an SBA loan through community banks like Field & Main, who partner with the Small Business Administration to deliver accessible financing to local businesses.

SBA loans can be used by a variety of small businesses including:

  • Boutique hotels and restaurants
  • Shops, small grocers, bookstores, and other retail businesses
  • Small manufacturing companies
  • Mechanical trade businesses
  • Independent healthcare facilities
  • Agricultural businesses and farms
