Lending

If you’re tired of feeling like a number or frustrated because you get assigned to a new loan officer every other week…you need to talk to us! Federal Savings Bank offers local and fast decision-making and personal attention that you won’t find anywhere else - the same great service our business customers have been enjoying since 1890!

Federal Savings Bank has been approved by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to offer the agency’s Express Line of Credit and Patriot Express lending programs.

The SBA Express Line gives small business borrowers an accelerated application process and expedited turnaround time for critical loan decisions. In addition, generous loan advance rates and competitive interest rates are often available using these SBA programs.

The SBA Patriot program provides financing for business owners who have served in the military. Eligible military community members include: veterans, service-disabled veterans, active-duty service members eligible for the military’s Transition Assistance Program, reservists and National Guard members’ current spouses of any of the above, and the widowed spouse of a service member or veteran who died during service or of a service-connected disability.
