SBA & USDA Business Loans

The Power to Do More

Small businesses make a big impact on our families, our communities and our economy.

Keeping them strong and helping them grow is our goal. That’s why mBank offers government-backed loans through the Small Business Administration (SBA), U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other government loan programs.

For qualified businesses, SBA and USDA loans may be used to secure financing for working capital, equipment, acquisitions, expansions, real estate and improvements, among other specific purposes — all key activities to drive business growth.

These loans are structured with fixed or variable interest rates and — different from conventional loans — offer lower down payments, longer loan amortization and great flexibility in loan structure/conditions.

As one of the top lenders in the Great Lakes Region, mBank provides your business with greater access to capital through our affiliation with the SBA and USDA loan programs. Our expert team will guide you through the entire process.
