Top SBA and USDA Lender
First Southwest Bank is one of the state's best SBA lenders - included in the top 25 in 2014. We're also widely-known as one of the most active USDA lenders in the state. That means we know the ins and outs of the Small Business Administration's and government financing programs and can help you navigate through to get the best credit enhanced program for you.

Unique Lending Programs
First Southwest Bank’s nonprofit affiliate First Southwest Community Fund was one of thirty one entities nationwide, and one of two in Colorado, to receive an award from the USDA’s Rural Development Intermediary Relending Program in 2016. This money will be invested back into the community as low-rate, fixed loans to new and expanding small businesses. If you have a small business that would be interested in a fixed rate loan, please contact Sherry Waner.
Additionally, First Southwest Bank is proud to receive $5,000,000 through the USDA Rural Development Community Facilities Program. First Southwest Bank was one of 26 entities nationwide, and the only one in Colorado, to receive an award in 2016. This money will be used to facilitate funding for critical community facilities and nonprofits, such as libraries, fire stations and police stations, which often face unique roadblocks to securing funding. If you work for, or know of, a critical community facility that needs funding, Sherry Waner would love to meet with you.
