Peter Rayno, NH Community Banking and Lending Director, EVP said, “We are grateful to be recognized as GSDC’s SBA 504 Bank of the Year for 2022. This recognition is an honor and very meaningful for our Team. GSDC is the largest certified development company (CDC) in the Northeast, the leader in assisting small business in New England, and has been a tremendous partner to Enterprise Bank over the years.

The Small Business Administration was created by Congress in 1953 to support small businesses and to strengthen the economy by providing a range of services to small businesses including financing. In 1958, the Small Business Investment Act was passed by Congress, which established what is currently known as the SBA 504 loan program.
The SBA 504 loan helps small business owners obtain long-term financing for capital assets like the purchase of real estate and expensive equipment. The SBA 504 loan provides financing for businesses to invest in their own facilities, continue to expand, and create new jobs.
