Mid-America CU Assoc. launches small-biz lending website
BISMARCK, N.D. (10/26/10)--Mid-America Credit Union Association has launched a website to promote credit unions as a small-business lending resource for consumers, credit union members and prospective members in North Dakota and South Dakota. The Credit Union Business Lending website reflects efforts to increase awareness in the Dakotas about credit unions’ role in fostering small businesses and offering small-business loans and financial services without government assistance or taxpayer funds. Small businesses in the Dakotas are finding it increasingly difficult to obtain credit, according to Mid-America CEO/President Robbie Thompson. The business lending website offers frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the credit union difference, information about credit union’s “safe and sound” financial operations; and help in finding a credit union. Mid-America intends to expand the interactive site by sharing member business lending success stories from credit unions in the Dakotas and adding links to agencies such as the Small Business Administration. For more information, use the link.
