Loans to fit every reason for any season

Whether you wish to obtain cash you need for home improvements, a vehicle or motorcycle purchase, debt consolidation, or even to take that dream vacation or buy that dream boat, Availa Bank offers many types of consumer loans, including personal lines of credit, fixed rate secured and unsecured loans.

Your Availa consumer lender will provide you with personal service to make sure you are obtaining the best loan to fit your needs. The application process is easy, and because loan decisions are made right here in your community, you can be assured of a quick turnaround time on your loan request.

Home Equity Loans and Lines of Credit

Take advantage of being a homeowner and use the equity in your home to obtain the cash you need. Choose a fixed interest rate loan with fixed payments with a Home Equity Loan or enjoy the flexibility of an Availa Bank revolving Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) featuring our variable quarterly interest rate product or our 5 year variable rate product.  The interest on home equity products may qualify as a tax deduction. Be sure to ask your tax advisor.  Minimal closing costs. No application fees or annual fees.

Student Loans

We work with Iowa Student Loan to offer supplemental private loans to help you pay for college as well as refinance existing student loan debt. As an Iowa non-profit and the state’s student loan experts, Iowa Student Loan offers competitively priced loans.*

The Partnership Advance Education Loan (Partnership Loan) and College Family Loan were created to help you pay college costs while you are or your student is in school.

  • The Partnership Loan is for students and their cosigners.
  • The College Family Loan is for parents, family members and others who wish to borrow on behalf of a student.

The Reset Refinance Loan can help you simplify repayment or pay lower interest costs on existing student loans after college.

With these loans, you know what you’re getting before you apply as all terms and conditions, including credit score requirements for specific rates, are provided upfront. In addition, there are no upfront origination fees and you can earn an interest rate reduction for making payments by auto-debit in repayment. Note: These loans are subject to credit approval.
