Community Business Finance had much to celebrate in 2015, including our 10th anniversary. Over the last ten years, Community Business Finance has proudly approved more than 200 loans for a total of over $150,000,000, and created over 2,300 jobs throughout Texas and Louisiana. While we are honored to have helped so many businesses realize their dreams, ultimately our goal is for any business that wants a 504 loan to have access to a 504 loan, or any loan that best suits their business needs.
According to data from the Houston District Office of the Small Business Administration, the total dollar amount of SBA loans issued to Houston-area small businesses increased by 15% in fiscal year 2015. FY 2015 saw more than $804 million in SBA loans, up from $688 million in FY 2014, for a record-setting lending year.
