Agency Guarantee Programs

When there are gaps between what you want to do and what the bank can do, agency guarantee programs can often be the bridge. Frequently, these programs are used when capital and/or collateral are lacking. For young or start up businesses, sometimes an agency guarantee is the solution to getting your first loan. Turn to us for in-depth expertise on many small business financing programs, including:

  • Small Business Administration
  • USDA Rural Development
  • Finance Authority of Maine
  • New Hampshire Business Finance Authority
  • Vermont Economic Development Authority

All applications are subject to approval


The Bank Secrecy Act requires us to gather information when opening new accounts or renewing existing accounts. The rule requires the Bank to obtain, verify and record information about beneficial owners of legal entities. FinCEN has adopted what they describe as a “two pronged” approach to beneficial ownership. The ownership prong includes all natural persons with 25% or more direct or indirect equity interest in a legal entity; while the control prong is a single individual with significant managerial responsibility over the legal entity. We will ask to see a copy of each person’s identification and record information from each of them. To help you gather the required information click here to see the Certification Regarding Beneficial Owners of Legal Entity Customers form.
