3 reasons to bank with a community bank

Reason #1: At Community Banks, Loan Decisions are Made Locally

Have you ever applied for a loan with a big bank only to be left frustrated and confused?

When you apply for a loan with a community bank, decisions are made locally, not by someone in a high-rise building in a big city. 

And our loan officers are accessible! They’ll work with you to help you meet your financial goals.

Loans at Persons Banking Company offer …

  • … the flexibility to finance any life expense, from home improvements to debt consolidation to college tuition.
  • … potential tax savings (be sure to consult with your tax advisor in addition to your Persons Banking loan officer).
  • … an easy application process to make applying for your loan as stress free as possible.

Reason #2: Deposits Stay In Your Community

Did you know that big banks do a nightly sweep of their deposits? 

That means that the deposit you make to a big bank goes straight to the bank’s headquarters (instead of staying in your community.)

When you bank locally, your money stays in your community.

And this helps ensure that your community is a good place to live, work, and play!

Reason #3: Community Banks Give Back Locally

Community banks donate money to local schools, police and fire departments, charities, and civic organizations.

Persons Banking Company gives back to organizations such as:

Monroe County Chamber of Commerce and Police Department
Perry and Warner Robins Chambers
Dogwood Festival in Perry
Forsythia Festival in Forsyth
Mary Persons High School in Monroe County
Houston County Schools
