You eat local, you shop local, why not bank local? That’s the idea behind ICBA’s Go Local initiative, inspiring consumers and businesses alike to re-invest in their own communities through their local community bank.
Do you have any great stories about local, small businesses in your community? Are you a small business owner who has worked with a community bank? We are looking for success stories of small businesses that either thrived or were created during the recession with pivotal assistance from a local community bank.
We’d love to hear from you! Comment on this post or email Jessica Etter at firstname.lastname@example.org with your stories.
