A Phone Call Away

M&T Bank stepped up to help customers in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. during the COVID-19 pandemic. DC Media Connection, a minority-owned media company located in the district, was among the small businesses the bank assisted with a PPP loan. The pandemic forced owner Angel Livas to restructure and reframe how her company was doing things. Angel called her banker at M&T who encouraged her to apply for a PPP loan. She qualified and within two weeks, Angel had the money to help her business move forward during the difficult time.

Local Banking Supporting Local Business

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, National Capital Bank stepped up to support small businesses in need. When Lisa Williams, founder of a Cap8 Doors and Hardware in Washington, DC, reached out to the bank for help, the bank stepped up to secure PPP funding to support her business. Williams established her company as a result of the growing need for a full-service door distributor and installer. As a minority-owned business which was recently named one of the best places to work in the region, Williams has filled a void in both the construction environment and in her local community. She was able to lean on her relationship with the bank when she needed it most.
