Business and Industry Guaranteed Loans

Business and Industry Guaranteed Loans are loan guarantees where the cost is a one-time, up-front fee of 3% of the amount guaranteed. A reduced fee may be obtained for a high impact business in a persistently poor community. Loan purposes include purchase and expansion of land, equipment, buildings, working capital, aquaculture, commercial nurseries, tourist and recreation facilities, hotels, motels, community facility projects, housing development sites, apartment buildings and the purchase of stock in a cooperative where commodities are being produced by the members for processing by the cooperative. Loan funds cannot be used for lines of credit, gambling, golf courses, and agricultural production over $1 million or more than 50% of a project and when not part of an integrated agriculture processing business.
