What to bring with you?
While you can always come in and discuss your business loan needs with one of our
Lending Specialists, it is often helpful and more efficient to fill out as much of the Commercial Loan Application as possible ahead of time. Often a Personal Financial Statement is also necessary, so look over that document and gather your numbers. It will make your appointment more focused and easier.
