Large companies and corporations may steal the spotlight from time to time, but there is no question that small businesses are what drive the American economy. As of 2020, there were over 32 million small businesses in the United States, accounting for over 99% of total business in the country!
This week, we celebrate Small Business Week, a time to recognize the tenaciousness, hard work, and community impact of small businesses throughout the country. At FNB Small Business Finance, celebrating small businesses goes beyond just the first week of May – it’s a daily occurrence.
As an SBA lender, we have the privilege of partnering with small businesses and entrepreneurs on a daily basis to help them achieve their goals through SBA lending. When you work as closely with small businesses as we do, you get to know them on a more granular level. We become very familiar with the faces behind the business, the challenges they face, the dreams that spur them onward, and the values that make them tick. We pride ourselves on being not just another bank but a business partner, dedicated to achieving together!
Whether they’re a brand-new start-up in need of capital or a franchise ready to expand, our team of SBA lenders works day in and day out to help small business owners realize their goals.
