Equipment Loans

Agri-One Financial offers intermediate or equipment financing. Loan proceeds can be used to purchase new equipment or can be used to refinance their equipment line. Loan terms are tailored to meet the cash flow requirements of each individual operation.

We prefer to offer equipment loans to those customers with whom we also have a real estate loan relationship, or to customers pledging real estate as collateral. We may limit the territory to areas that we can serve directly from our office or through selected correspondents.
