Small Business Administration Recognizes Local Lenders
HARLINGEN - The U.S. Small Business Administration recognized some Valley banks as part of it's Lender Appreciation Day on Thursday.
The SBA recognized banks in Harlingen who've made most loans in the last year. The SBA focuses exclusively on helping small businesses with loans and wanted to recognize the banks who help make it all happen. S.B.A. District Director Sylvia Zamponi stated, "The toughest time that a lender has making a loan to a small business is when it's just beginning, the first year in business. With the SBA backing that loan product , we find that the partnership works beautifully so that the small business and the community, it's a win win all the way around."
