Why Choose a Community Bank?
Community banks make decisions based on a
person's character rather than a computer’s assessment of their
financial well being.
Community banks contribute to the economic
well-being of your community. They focus on the needs of local
people and businesses. Community bank loans are directed to the
communities where their depositors live and work, thereby supporting
and strengthening local economies.
Community banks offer quick decision-making on
business and personal loans, since we make decisions locally. The
personal touch is the hallmark of the community bank. They
provide neighborly service -- from knowing a customer's name to
making loans to someone who does not fit the cookie-cutter criteria
set by many larger banks.
Community bankers seek long-term relationships
with their customers. Their core business is lending to consumers, small businesses and farmers.
