Thankful for another Great Year of Small Business Lending!
With 2019 underway, we’d like to take a moment to one again express our sincere gratitude for all of our small business borrowers and commercial lending partners across the state for working with us to become Florida’s #1 SBA lender statewide again for 2018 and a third year in a row.
Florida First Capital, a private nonprofit Certified Development Company originally founded by the state of Florida in 1983, approved 213 loan projects during the 2018 fiscal year resulting in $201,223,000 of approved 504 dollars and $452,751,750 in total project financing. The company also finished FY 18 ranked #3 nationwide among all active Certified Development Companies.
That momentum continues into the new fiscal year. For the first two months of 2019, Florida First Capital led not only the state of Florida but also the nation in SBA 504 loan production, both in dollar totals and number of loans. According to the SBA, as of Nov. 30, Florida First Capital produced 53 SBA 504 loan projects resulting in $57,912,000 of approved 504 dollars and $130,302,000 in total project financing.
At Florida First Capital, we are committed to providing excellent customer service. We have, and continue to build, one of the best and most experienced small business lending teams of professional loan officers and underwriting, closing and servicing professionals the SBA 504 loan industry has to offer. We will continue working hard as Florida’s top SBA lender and at earning your business each and every day. And again, many thanks for a great 2018!
