The Victory Bank Funds $100 Million in SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loans
The Victory Bank is proud to have funded $100 million in PPP loans to local businesses.
In April of 2020, the bank processed over 560 loans in less than four weeks, noting they did so with 75% capacity of the workforce working remotely.
In total, the bank processed over 850 PPP loans between April 2020 and April 2021, helping employers retain over 11,000 jobs in the region. The Victory Bank typically processes an average of 400 loans per year. Many members of the staff worked tirelessly, seven days a week, sometimes logging 17 hour days, to make sure each loan was processed and booked without error while continuing to serve the existing lending and deposit needs of the bank’s clients.
“I believe it is impossible to overstate the critical importance of having local banks headquartered in the community that are available to supply much-needed credit and solve financial problems. This approach is far different from those of large banks or the many non-banks promoting “bank-like” services on the Internet. Never was this more evident than over the past year and a half. That’s why our bank exists - to provide essential services to our local communities and help create stability and prosperity for all.” stated Joseph Major, CEO, and Bank Leader.
The bank continues to support local businesses, providing customized lending solutions with expert advice. In addition to another record year in earnings, The Victory Bank was voted by the public as the “Best Bank” in Montgomery County for the fifth consecutive year by Montco Happenings. The Bank also maintains a 5-Star Rating with Bauer Financial. Bauer Financial, Inc. is the nation's leading independent bank and credit union rating and research firm. It has been reporting and analyzing the performance of U.S. banks and credit unions since 1983.
