FAQ

People often ask us

The US Small Business Administration helps finance new businesses and helps existing businesses flourish through a federal loan program.

Start by talking with your First Citizens banker. We can help you determine what financing you need based on your business plan and model. If you're not a current customer, contact a First Citizens representative at your local branch. Another good place to start is the US Small Business Administration website, which has tools and resources to help you in the planning stages of starting your own business, including determining if an SBA loan is right for you.

To apply for a business loan, contact a First Citizens representative at your local branch.

A term loan provides financing for capital expenditures (such as vehicle or equipment needs or fixed assets) that are regularly amortized over a period of time. A line of credit allows you to easily access funds whenever you need them for short-term financing needs. And a lease can help you with vehicle and equipment financing, with potential tax benefits.

If you prefer knowing what your interest rate and payment will be throughout the life of your loan, you should consider a fixed rate loan. In contrast, a variable interest rate loan may give you a lower rate and payment amount initially, with the chance that the rate and payment may rise or fall in the future.
