“Being a relatively small bank, it’s very satisfying to see small businesses start in our community. Even though they are often undercapitalized, it is exciting to work with businesses that are beginning and trying to grow and to see them succeed. Entrepreneurs are the reason for this type of growth and without their efforts the community would not see the growth of certain businesses and job growth.
