Small Business Loan Products

Are you starting or expanding a small business in Nebraska? Do you need just a little bit more working capital? Have you tried, but have been unsuccessful in getting a traditional bank loan? Our small business loans may be your answer.

To serve a more diverse set of clients, our underwriting process is more flexible than traditional lenders. For example, we can work with you if you have little or no credit history, are just starting your business, or if you are in an industry that is difficult for traditional banks to underwrite.
