How to Apply

Whether you’re applying online or at a local office, we’re here to make the loan process as easy as possible.

  1. Gather Your Borrower Information
    You can apply individually or with someone else, but be sure to have the basic information handy for both borrowers, including legal name, physical address, date of birth, social security number, farm and other income. Make sure you know your annual income and the amount you want to borrow.
  2. Understand Collateral Requirements††
    Securing your loan or lease with collateral can have a positive impact on your application approval process. Fortunately, we make it easy to use items such as equipment, livestock or inventory.
  3. Complete our application, either online or in-person
    We offer options with our loan application. You can either apply online online for loans up to $150,000 or through a local office with one of our team members.

Rate Types

Fixed Rate Loans

A fully fixed interest rate for the life of the loan.

Adjustable Rate Loans

Loans with a fixed interest for a period less than the loan term.

Variable Rate Loans

Variable rate loans available where interest rates may change monthly based on the cost of short-term money.

Loan Conversion Program

Loan Conversion Program

If interest rates go down and your circumstances change, you can convert your existing loans with us to a lower rate**. Unlike other lenders who require a lengthy and expensive refinancing process, we allow you to quickly convert your loan to a new product for a simple processing fee. In addition, there is no need to re-qualify for the loan.

Contact your local office to learn if a conversion may be right for you.

With a loan conversion, you can:

  • Avoid expensive refinancing costs.
  • Have the flexibility to manage your loan rate.
  • Lock in rates for a longer or shorter period of time.
