Longer terms. Less money down.

Your business may qualify for financing more easily and receive more flexible terms through the US Small Business Administration (SBA) lending, which can help preserve your working capital for other expenses. SBA loans are federally guaranteed loans that allow local Credit Unions, like Gesa Credit Union to offer loans and lines of credit with longer year terms (lower monthly payments) for less money down.  


Gesa Credit Union is proud to be a PLP Lender (Preferred Lending Provider) with the SBA.  PLP lenders can offer the full range of SBA loan products, and have the authority to make final credit decisions, which simplifies and speeds up the loan approval process for everyone involved.
