Last week SomerCor joined with other members of the Illinois Bankers Association to meet with Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky to discuss access to capital and other critical issues related to the lending industry. The conversation focused on federal initiatives impacting our lending partners and small business clients.

In addition, we covered the prospects of Congress passing appropriations bills, which fund important agencies and programs, including those administered by the Small Business Administration.

As Chicago’s largest SBA 504 loan provider, it is consistent with our mission to engage with public officials – on both sides of the aisle – in support of the powerful financial tools we offer in support of business growth, community impact and job creation.
