Busey Business Loan Types and Special Programs

Busey’s participation in a wide variety of specialized loan programs allows us to tailor commercial lending packages to your unique situation. With a strong understanding of your business, your commercial relationship manager will help you make the best financing decision for your company.

USDA Business and Industry (B&I) Guaranteed Loan

The Business and Industry (B&I) Guaranteed Loan Program helps create jobs and stimulates rural economies by providing financial backing for rural businesses. This program provides guarantees of up to 90 percent of a loan made by the bank. Loan proceeds may be used for working capital, machinery and equipment, buildings and real estate, and certain types of debt refinancing.

SBA Loans

Busey is a designated SBA Lender, which means we are authorized to make commercial lending decisions without waiting for SBA approval, streamlining your loan process. Use your SBA loan for real estate, machinery or equipment purchases, construction or renovation, or to start your dream business.

Working Capital Loans

Our working capital loans provide peace of mind for businesses with a cyclical nature. Our lenders will help you develop an effective safety net using knowledge of your business and of the nature of your industry.

Agricultural Loans

Throughout generations, the needs of your farm grow and change. At Busey, we can help manage the unique challenges you face whether you need a loan for production expenses or to purchase land and equipment. Busey has the resources you need to maximize your efforts for generations to come. Learn more about our farm management and farmland brokerage services through Busey Ag Services and Busey Farm Brokerage.

Fixed Asset Financing

Your business growth depends on your ability to purchase fixed assets or fund capital expenditures. With an in-depth knowledge of your business and industry, your relationship manager will work with you to carefully plan each purchase.

Community Development

Busey backs our neighbors with a solid promise to reinvest in our communities — one project at a time. Projects that provide community-wide benefits may qualify for low interest commercial lending programs.
