Whatever your business need – Monroe Bank & Trust has a solution.
You’ll work with a dedicated business lender who is familiar with your industry, and knowledgeable about the challenges affecting your business. We know that lending for business has never been a one-size-fits-all approach. Your business lender will take the time to explore your unique business needs, and then provide business lending solutions that will work for you.
Big banks may not take the time necessary to explore flexible and creative funding solutions for each customer. That’s especially true if you’re not a billion-dollar company.
But that’s not how it works at Monroe Bank & Trust.
Every business gets a comprehensive review, and you’ll also have access to senior leadership. You never need to worry that your loan will be passed off to some faraway corporate office for a decision. At Monroe Bank & Trust, we’re right here to work with you.
The Local Edge
Dozens of banks are lending to businesses, and many are crossing state lines. But do you really want a bank that’s located more than 1,000 miles away, providing your business financing solutions?
If you’re a local business, you should work with a local lender – one that not only knows your business, but also the neighborhood that you operate in. Let’s face it – email and telephone are good, but sometimes only face-to-face will get the job done.
Your dedicated Monroe Bank & Trust lending expert will work with you and spend the time necessary to find the right business financing solutions to fit your unique situation. Experience the difference of local decision-making in working with a financial partner with in-depth knowledge of your market.
