Business Loans

Customized programs and quick decisions from friendly local lenders.





Loans and Lines

Back in 1947, Bank Independent (then called the Bank of Leighton) was formed to serve the banking needs of the agricultural operations in rural Colbert County, Alabama.  Our founders knew that if these businesses had the financial support they needed to grow and thrive, the entire community would benefit.

It's this belief that "a rising tide lifts all boats" that has driven our deep commitment to support businesses of all sizes across the Tennessee Valley for the last 70+ years...and we'd like to help yours, too.

From office technology to heavy machinery to a fleet of vans; if your business needs it, we want to help you finance it through:

  • Fixed-rate and variable-rate loans,
  • Secured and unsecured options,
  • Small Business Administration (SBA) programs,
  • Working capital and cash flow solutions, and/or
  • Lines of credit.
Our Sales Officers will work closely with you to create the right lending package for your needs. And unlike some of the big banks, we trust our local lenders to make lending decisions, so your loan can be approved and funded quickly.
