Centris FCU named SBA rural lender of the year
OMAHA, Neb. (4/21/11)--Nebraska's largest credit union--Centris FCU, based in Omaha--has been named the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) national lender of the year for rural and community loans, announced SBA last week. The award recognizes a lender that assists small businesses in creating jobs during difficult economic times (Omaha World-Herald April 15). The $432 million asset credit union increased its SBA-insured loan total to $6.5 million at the end of 2010, from $390,000 in 2007, said the World-Herald. It added 24 new loans totaling $4 million last year, which is the third-largest volume in the state for the year. SBA-guaranteed loans comprise about 30% of Centris' business lending portfolio. Centris, with 68,000 members, serves members who live, work, worship, or attend school in Douglas, Sarpy or Lincoln Counties in Nebraska or in Pottawattamie County, Iowa.
