Job creation is essential to us. We want outcomes that create value for our community and vitality to our neighborhoods. That means families are earning an income that is reaching the self-sufficiency standards for our community and beyond.
In 2018 our capital deployments to small businesses sustained or created 102 jobs. This hallmark of 2018 is extraordinary for several reasons. The first being that we helped several businesses employ others and many employed themselves when there were few to no other options. While creating individual value, we are also building public economic security by developing the local tax base that supports our shared infrastructure. Accomplishing job creation through equitable lending creates more allies that can contribute to these goals with capital and technical support.
