Life is slowly returning to normal from the initial onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
While there are still many hurdles ahead, many of 21st Century Bank’s small business customers are ready to make some major choices. Businesses were forced to put decisions on hold when the pandemic started, and now, the economy is starting to change, and we are encouraged that some companies are making the push. Community banks play a key role in small business lending, and we are proud to help during this difficult time.
When the economy was in crisis at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) helped many companies stay afloat during that unprecedented time (though it’s still raging). Here at 21st Century Bank, we did everything in our power to help as many small business customers as possible.
21st Century Bank’s president, Jon Dolphin, had the pleasure to have been featured in a Twin Cities Business article on this economic holding pattern – and believe it offers valuable insight on the past to help us look toward the future. A special shout out goes to Burl Gilyard, senior writer at the magazine, for taking the time to interview him.
If you have a second, give it a read – it provides valuable information on the economy during the pandemic, which can offer insight on where we’re headed next.
