“Everyone at SKED has been so helpful and friendly. I didn’t know everything that was involved in running a small business. SKED has been a great resource and answered my calls quickly at all times. The staff helped me get my business off the ground and is always there if I need them.”
Jason Kahn, owner Creek Road Rustic Furniture
“During the first few weeks, I worried how I would pay for the basics, keep my loan payments current and pay my utilities,” she explained. “But then the SKED folks called and let me know they were there for me. They offered a deferment on my business loan and had received funding through the SBA CARES Act to pay my microloan payments for six months. It was a huge relief during a frightening time in my life.”
Rita Cox, owner Little People Childcare
“The SKED staff is personally invested in our region and in every loan they make,” Brown said. “Instead of asking how they could help, they said: Here is how we will help you. We think that is amazing customer service, and you will not find that in many other lenders.”
Dan Brown, owner Somerset Asian Market
“As a result of the support and guidance of SKED, not only have I been able to grow a successful casual-dining restaurant concept for the last several years, but have also been supported to further strengthen our business by purchasing the building we have occupied for the previous six years. This opportunity would not have been possible if not for the continued support of guidance of the great folks at SKED.”
