First United Bank - Bank Loan Day 2024

First United Bank - 5802 4th Street , 4/4/24
4:00 PM

Bank Loan Day is an event for children who want to be involved in Lemonade Day to get a bank loan from First United Bank at their 4th & Frankford location. Bank Loan Day teaches children how to take out a small business loan for their lemonade stand.

Sixteen children participating in Lemonade Day 2024 completed a business plan for their lemonade stand, spoke with a loan officer and applied for a small business loan. Each applicant can receive up to $40. Much like a traditional loan for small businesses, the children were required to pay a $1 processing fee for their loan and are expected to pay back the money they borrowed by Friday, May 10, 2024.

The Lubbock Health Department was also on hand to issue health permits to children who plan on serving hot food and need them for their stand.
