Can you finance a business' assets to help cover the amount needed as down payment?

I know the assets need to be approved by the different lenders, but my only question is, since the owner is also financing a portion of the price, wouldn't the note stop you from being able to use lets say equipment as collateral?

Why is the owner also financing? Is he going to be a partner? We could try for an LTV ratio loan. If this won't work we could try another way. What are your FICO's? What is the amount needed? Contact me at if you are interested.
