Berkshire Bank understands how difficult properly completing a loan application can be for a small business. So does SCORE. So many details and number crunching. How daunting! SCORE has assisted several small businesses complete their SBA program loan applications for Berkshire Bank, an SBA approved lender.
"Thank you, Score, for all you do for small business. In recognition of small business week and as a thank you for helping Berkshire Bank reach the number 1 SBA lender status in Connecticut and for helping our small business community succeed, we are providing your Score organization  a grant," proclaimed Michael Duffany, VP Banking Officer at Berkshire.  
Duffany continued, "We value Score. We are sending all start ups coming to us for financing to SCORE. You need a business plan. Go see Score. They will provide you the help you need to be successful."
At Greater Hartford SCORE, we are grateful for the recognition. Thank you!
