Islamorada Brewing Company - Brewing Success

10000 jobs created for small business

Ten Thousand Jobs for Small Businesses

Political candidates like to talk about creating jobs. We like that kind of talk, but we also like actually creating jobs. We’re really excited to tell you that we’ve now had a hand in creating and retaining more than 10,000 jobs (10,291 to be exact) for small businesses across these United States.

One of the reasons we’re so passionate about the SBA 504 loan program is that job creation/retention is a main component. It’s designed to help business owners create jobs though commercial real estate ownership, and that’s something that really makes what we do worthwhile.

That’s when the SBA 504 refinance program was in effect (the first go ‘round), and the number of refi loans we were able to do really goosed our lending totals that year. So not counting 2012, Q1 2016 saw us reach our highest loan volume total in the history of Mercantile: more than $88 million in total project costs.
