Government-guaranteed loans are among the many tools Surrey Bank & Trust loan officers use to help new and growing businesses in our markets obtain the capital they need.
Take advantage of our expertise in SBA loan programs
Approved to offer SBA loan products under SBA's Preferred Lender program.
Over the years, SBA loan programs have helped us provide affordable financing for customers who might not qualify for conventional loans.
As our expertise has grown, so has our reputation as a leading SBA lender. For the past decade, Surrey Bank & Trust has ranked among the most active SBA lenders in North Carolina. We've also been recognized as the North Carolina Community Bank Lender of the Year numerous times.
We are proud to be an SBA Preferred Lender (PLP), a designation not every bank earns. Lenders are considered for PLP status based on their record with SBA, and must have demonstrated a proficiency in processing and servicing SBA-guaranteed loans.
Under this program, SBA delegates the final credit decision and most servicing to carefully selected PLP lenders. This streamlines the SBA lending process, providing a faster turn-around for our customers.
We offer a variety of small business loans and lines of credit through the 7(a) Loan Program, that can be used to buy, build, improve or refinance commercial property; finance land acquisition; or obtain operating capital.
