Supportive Solutions Counseling and consulting
When you are starting or expanding a business, having a good relationship with your lender can make or break a deal. Those lenders that are local where you can put a name to a face, where he or she is a part of your community and you can see the person at the grocery store, really is an important piece to your puzzle.
The Small Business Development Center at Onondaga Community College has a network of local lenders that we turn to for our clients’ needs, and those lenders turn to us for their clients’ needs. The relationship is an important piece to any deal that is being developed.
During this pandemic, lending has been stricter, harder, and more strained when it comes to obtaining funds but that doesn’t mean it is impossible. Businesses are still expanding, businesses are still growing even though we are in these challenging times. In December of 2020, Jamey Lloyd, Vice President, Senior Relationship Manager Business & Professional from M&T Bank contacted NYS Advanced Certified Business Advisor, Melissa Zomro Davis to help with financial projections on a building purchase for their client, Dr. Melissa Carman, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and the owner of Supportive Solutions Counseling and Consulting which has been established for ten years.
