Heartland Bank Money Matters

In-Person Credit Building | FDIC Financial Education Center

Small Dollar Loan Program


Our Money Matters Small Dollar Loan Program can assist you in building or repairing your personal credit. These loans range between $500 and $1,500.

Credit Builder

The entire loan amount is placed in a Heartland Bank Simply Savings Account. These funds are held as collateral. Your credit is built as on-time monthly payments are made toward the amount borrowed. Upon successful repayment of the loan, the amount you borrowed will be made available to you.

Credit Repair

Half of the total loan amount is placed in a Heartland Bank Simply Savings Account and held as collateral. The remaining half is given to you. You may choose to pay off a high interest debt, have Heartland Bank send a payment directly to a company for you, or put your money into a Money Matters Checking account. Your credit is repaired as on-time monthly payments are made toward the amount borrowed. Upon successful repayment of the loan, the remaining amount that was held as collateral will be made available to you.

To Apply:

  • This is a personal loan designed for a single borrower only.
  • You must have proof of identity, address, and 6 months verifiable income.
  • Once approved, a $25 document fee will be required at closing.
  • You must provide a Certificate of Completion from the Money Matters Financial Education Class.
