Many of our local business owners have had trouble getting approved for the federal PPP loans. We are among the lucky businesses that were able to take advantage of this program. I credit the small bank that I use for my business needs. I have been with Signature Bank of Georgia in Sandy Springs for almost 10 years. They were my personal bank in the years before I started Decaturish. Signature Bank helped me get my PPP loan approved and has made the process as easy as it can reasonably be. More importantly, as a smaller bank, they know who their clients are and what they’re dealing with. Instead of going to a big corporate bank, try a smaller bank with headquarters closer to home.
