This time of year we are looking at those final numbers to see how we did at helping small businesses. I am happy to report that CDC Small Business Finance has once again led the nation in SBA 504 lending and furthermore we are extremely proud to report that CDC also led the nation in SBA Community Advantage Lending for the first full year of this pilot program.
With all this lending success it is easy to forget that CDC also helps lots of small businesses that are still struggling to recover as this letter we received so eloquently states:
“Good afternoon everyone,
We truly want to express to all of you our sincere appreciation in helping us overcome the current devastating business climate by modifying our loan obligations. We will continue doing our best to remain afloat and current in our payments.
Without your hard work and continued support, our business would have closed it’s door a long time ago.
We thank you for allowing us continue operating and paying our bills. We promise you that we will do our best to keep working hard to meet our obligations.
Take care and enjoy your day.”
So as always , let us look beyond the numbers to see the impact we are truly having – Making a Difference – every day
