Achieva Credit Union Now Offers SBA Patriot Express

6/15/2012 3:55:07 PM

Clearwater, Florida – June 15, 2012 – Achieva Credit Union is proud to be one of a small group of financial institutions to offer U.S. Small Business Administration Patriot Express products. 

The SBA Patriot Express program is designed to offer loan initiatives for members of the military community and veterans to launch or develop small businesses.  This expedited process typically yields a turnaround time within 48 hours.  Loans through the Patriot Express program feature longer terms with less cash injection.

Those eligible include veterans, service-disabled veterans, active duty service members in the Transition Assistance Program, Reservists, National Guard members, spouses, and widowed spouses of a service member or veteran.  The Patriot Express loan can be used for business purposes such as start-up costs, equipment purchases, business-occupied real-estate purchases, inventory, expansion or acquisition of an existing business.

Achieva is proud to offer this unique product in support of our military members.  “We strive to focus on providing our members with products and services that will best help them achieve their goals.  Being able to offer this effective product to assist those who have served in the military in reaching their goals is something we’re especially proud to provide,” says Achieva President/CEO, Gary Regoli.
