Small Business Loan 504
If you own a small business, or you're trying to start a business, you know how difficult it can be to obtain the financing you need to grow and prosper. Working with the Small Business Administration (SBA), we are able to offer loans to meet your specific needs. Imagine the possibilities with a SBA loan from State Bank of Countryside!
The 504 loan program has long-term, fixed-rate financing and is used to acquire fixed assets for expansion or modernization. Use proceeds to purchase long-term machinery, existing buildings, or land; make land improvements; build new facilities or modernize, renovate or convert existing ones. NOTE: The 504 Program cannot be used for working capital or inventory.

How the Program Works:
Every 504 project requires the participation of a Certified Development Company (CDC). CDCs are authorized by SBA to provide second-lien financing behind a first-mortgage lender, such as State Bank of Countryside. The following are typical structures for projects utilizing the 504 program.

(Note: SBA considers a business less than two years old to be a start up.)
Use of Companion SBA 7(a) Loans:
The 504 and 7(a) programs can be used in conjunction. For example, a 504 loan can be used to construct a building, and a companion 7(a) can be submitted simultaneously to finance machinery and equipment, inventory, working capital, etc.
- Terms of Loans
