Term Loan

A secured loan used to finance fixed assets (other than real estate), such as equipment. The term of the loan depends on the life of the asset being financed and the cash flow of the business operation.

Revolving or Seasonal Line of Credit (LOC)

Generally, a credit arrangement for financing fluctuations in current assets. The need predominantly results from a sales volume that cannot be supported by the internally generated cash flow of the business or a seasonal need, like inventory for peak times in a landscaping business. Repayment is from conversion of non-cash assets to cash, such as inventory and accounts receivable.

Permanent Working Capital

A loan used to finance cash needs. This type of loan is used when the business operation’s cash disbursements exceed its ability to generate cash internally. Repayment is from net profits.


If your business is expanding; needs 100% financing; or if you require a unique payment plan, leasing may be the option for you. Contact the lender at your local branch for more information.
