“Relationships are everything in banking and First Mid-Illinois Bank & Trust has built solid relationships with customers in Southwestern Illinois for many years. We’ve also built a solid relationship with the Small Business Administration, which helps us bring flexible financing to area businesses. As a Certified Lender and Express Lender with the SBA, First Mid is able to expedite the SBA loan process, while allowing area businesses to work with local trusted lenders.
In 2014 and 2015, the Illinois SBA recognized First Mid as Community Bank of the Year. And, we are currently the fourth largest 7(a) Lender for SBA’s 2016 fiscal year. When we can help small businesses reach their potential, it helps the entire community and drives the local economy. We’re honored to receive recognition from the SBA for our role in supporting small business. The partnership we have with SBA provides a win-win for our local clients.
In addition to providing financing, we take great pride in adding value to each business we work with by understanding the individual business and meeting its needs through a variety of financial services, including treasury management and investments. When we add value to the relationship, we become a full-service partner to our clients.
With two locations in Highland and a third in Maryville, we invite you to call or stop by to see how we can help you.”
