FBN® Finance Launches Instant Approvals for Equipment Financing

FBN Network

Jan 22, 2024

Purchasing equipment can be prohibitively expensive and capital-intensive, especially in a market where used equipment is in high demand. Equipment loans can help farmers buy the equipment they need to improve efficiency in their operations — without putting a strain on current budget or cash flow — though they often take some time to close. 

But now, with the new launch of FBN® Finance instant approvals* on equipment financing, farmers can get an instant decision to expedite the financing process and help them be more competitive in a seller’s market.

This convenient, easy instant feedback from FBN Finance helps farmers focus on securing the equipment they need to maximize operational profitability rather than spending valuable time going back and forth with a bank or other local lender. 

Farm equipment financing allows approved farmers to:

  • Purchase new equipment

  • Update existing equipment

  • Replace outdated equipment

  • Manage cash flow

The Benefits of Instant Approvals

Save Time

Regardless of whether you’re looking to lease or buy farm equipment, current market demand is high. It's in your best interest to act quickly when you find the right piece of farm equipment for sale. A significant benefit of FBN Finance’s instant approval process* is that you don’t have to fill out lengthy application forms and submit financial statements. Instead, you’ll disclose total assets, liabilities, and gross farm and non-farm income on the application.**

Quick Funding

With an instant approval*, farmers can likely receive funding faster^ because they don’t have to wait weeks for paperwork to be reviewed and approved. This is especially critical for farmers who need funding immediately to purchase equipment and get back to running their operation. 

Convenience and Ease

Applying for an equipment loan can be done from the comfort of your home office or from the convenience of your phone. This is a huge advantage for farmers who don't have the time to run back and forth to the bank, providing paperwork and documentation. With FBN Finance’s streamlined online system, you’ll be able to track your application’s progress throughout the entire financing process.
