Here’s the Good News. You’re financing more business expansions than ever before. And you’re keeping your CDC busy. And here’s our good news: You’re keeping us busy. That means even more good news for you: You’re keeping us so busy that we’ve added more underwriters and another processer to our team, with maybe more on the way.

 Now don’t get me wrong. I enjoy writing eBulletins, answering your questions, updating you on industry trends, and providing webinars from time-to-time. But my primary responsibility is helping you finance business growth in your community. Our increased efficiency will make it easier to access our services, providing faster turnaround─and greater efficiency on your end. It allows you to focus on what you do best: financing business expansion. And it allows us to focus on what we do best: helping your CDC grow in expertise and volume.

Our mutual responsibilities carry even greater importance now that the economy is on the upswing. We’ve worked our way through the PPP’s flood of regulations and the resulting glut of applications. Now we need to help 504 lenders address the ongoing challenges to their businesses, and to keep up the momentum. Our entire JRB Team is committed to that.

We look forward to continuing to work with you and the SBA lending community to expand small businesses, create more job opportunities, and support local economies across the country.

So keep on keeping us busy. And as always, keep your questions coming!
