If the value of verdant campus grounds, spacious lecture halls, and gleaming facilities was questioned
before, two years of virtual learning has made the importance of college and university resources
abundantly clear. Building and maintaining a college campus requires capital just like any other business,
but the types of resources a school requires can be hard for many lenders to understand — especially if the
school is a rural one.

As one of the leading USDA-backed lenders in the country, NAC is proud to oer competitively priced,
government-guaranteed capital to the educational industry with loans of $2 million to $25 million — and
even higher.
