2015 By the Numbers

Even though we’re more than halfway through January, we’d still like to wish you a Happy New Year! We’re sure 2016 is going to be a great year for SBA 504 lending, but before we talk about what’s to come, let’s see where we’ve been…

Happy Holidays 2015

Happy Holidays from Mercantile Capital Corporation

This is just a quick message to wish you Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. Frankly, you shouldn’t be reading emails from us when you could be with family and friends and celebrating the season, so we’ll keep this short. If you do have a question about SBA 504 loans, we’re not closing up shop […]

Six hundred is a big number, and we’ve now cleared that milestone in terms of loans closed.
