Supporting Women in Business

Recent studies show that women-owned businesses are the fastest growing business segment in our country.* Yet, we hear that many women feel underserved by their financial institutions. We want to change that and help you to build better businesses and stronger communities.

We can help women business owners like yourself find the right banking solutions that meet your needs and support your goals.

We're inspired by the women following their dreams and leading our communities.

Guided by a promise to help our clients and communities grow and thrive, our visionary founders understood the need for a strong community partner. A partner that could provide resources to their community through people, money, expertise and banking relationships to make our communities better. Today, as more and more women are stepping up to take on big challenges and drive communities forward with big dreams and strong drive, we know we have the opportunity to make a difference together.
