Crop Production Lending
“We’ve been customers for 40 years and even with the changes in the bank’s name, we’ve never noticed a difference in the quality of service. Our lending team in McCrory has always been very good to us and they make everything so easy. We’re a family of five generations in farming, and we couldn’t ask for a better partner than our bankers at First Financial Bank.”
— Dewanna F., Des Arc, AR
“Everyone we deal with at FFB is wonderful. We’ve been with them for decades and have never had any problems at all. The loan process was very easy and the staff is very professional, kind, and knowledgeable.”
— Keith S., Wynne, AR
“I’ve been a customer for over 15 years and the folks at First Financial care about my business as if it were their own. They are always looking out for me and want me to succeed, and have always had faith in me. As a first-generation farmer, it can be difficult to get started, but they not only helped me get started - they’ve helped me grow my farming and harvesting business. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my lending team at First Financial Bank.”

Farm and Ranch Lending
"One thing I really liked was when Pat came to my farm for a routine inspection and in passing, I mentioned a type of financing that I wanted. To my surprise, Pat said, with no hesitation that First Financial Bank could do what I needed. In a few days and a few pieces of paper later, the transaction was complete. From my experience, lenders at other agencies would never have gotten this process done so quickly."
— Kirk H., Grape Farmer, Fredonia, NY
"The team is great. Their location is so convenient. We already had a relationship with some of the folks. They make it super easy. I have their cell numbers and can text on a Sunday if we have questions. From Chris Johnson (Regional Market President) to the tellers – they make me happy when I pull up at the drive-thru windows!"

"I have purchased several homes in my lifetime. After working with Ethan Adamson and his team at First Financial Mortgage I only wish I had met him sooner. Simply put it is the best experience I've ever had working with a mortgage lender. First, on the purchase of a home and now on a refi. Even during a pandemic, it could not have been any easier or go more smoothly. Always the best rates and along with his can-do attitude and knowledge makes for a winning combination. Do yourself a favor and give Ethan the opportunity to win your business. You will not be disappointed."
— Aaron, Arkansas
"I recently worked with Rod and First Financial on a new mortgage loan. I couldn’t have been more pleased. He and his team communicated extremely quickly and well. Kept me on pace and provided all the information I needed each step of the way.
They were quick to get me approval letters and even responded on the weekend which is something I didn’t expect.
There is nobody else I’d use for my next home loan and highly recommend Rod and his team."
— Kyle, Arkansas
Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Lending
"I just want to say thank you to each one of you personally for all the hard work, time, and effort each one of you put in to make the PPP Loan Program successful.
My loan was processed and approved just in time for our business to receive the loan. I know there is a lot of work involved to make this happen. Not only did we receive the loan but it was also forgiven, another process in itself. Thanks to all of you so much!
This loan allowed our business to continue operations without any interruptions during the pandemic. Please pass my “thank you” along to everyone else who is involved in this process.
I look forward to continuing my business and personal relationship with First Financial Bank for many years to come."

“Anytime I needed my lender, he was there, even after hours.”

First Financial Bank and Scott have always been there for us. They stick their necks out to help us. I wouldn’t be where I am today without First Financial Bank. Scott is very easy to work with and is just a phone call away. I have confidence he will back me when I need him to. His co-worker, Kitty, is very helpful as well and has a lot of knowledge in what she does. I trust her to point me in the right direction.
— Dusty W., Arkansas
Michael is easy to get in touch with and always answers my questions. If he doesn’t know the answer, he will find out and get back to me quickly. He is very easy to work with and explains things well. It is not very often you can reach your banker on their cell phone, but I can reach Michael at any time I need him. We currently have eight poultry houses and are in the process of purchasing more property through Michael. Lee is also easy to work with and very kind. I would recommend banking with either of these men.
— Ann H., Mississippi
My husband and I have had an absolutely amazing experience with Matt Garrett and First Financial Bank in general. Everything has been fast and easy and any questions we’ve had were answered quickly and explained thoroughly. Very knowledgeable team and they provide many resources that have saved a lot of time and money. I will say that the refinancing of our home along with the huge poultry loan being added on has been much easier and much more enjoyable than when we got our original home loan at a different bank. Thanks again for everything and I would recommend Matt and First Financial to anyone!
