Mid Penn Bank Originates More Than $1 Billion in PPP Loans, Helping to Save 89,000-Plus Jobs
Mid Penn Bank has approved and disbursed more than $370 million in loans for small businesses since the 2021 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) portal was opened for community banks in January.
Mid Penn Bank has provided loans for more than 3,300 businesses in the 2021 program. The Small Business Administration-backed loans received by these employers has allowed them to retain more than 34,000 workers on their payrolls.
The bank’s SBA team relied on the experience gained in the first round of PPP in 2020 to help business owners and managers efficiently and successfully apply for and receive this critical funding. Through both the 2020 and 2021 programs, Mid Penn Bank has funded more than 7,400 loans for more than $1.0 billion.
“This unprecedented program has been a critical component of sustaining the economies in the markets we serve,” said Mid Penn Bank President and CEO Rory Ritrievi. “I am incredibly proud of the work that we are doing to get applications submitted quickly and correctly so that we can get these needed funds to the businesses that are the backbone of local economies.”
The Mid Penn Paycheck Protection Program lending team is led by Natalie Falatek, First Vice President and Director of SBA/guaranteed lending. In 2019, Falatek completed the prestigious 7A Accreditation through the National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders (NAGGL) Advanced Lender Diploma Program. She is one of only 49 lenders in the country to earn the 7A Accreditation. In 2020, Falatek received the Coleman PPP Lender of the Year Award from the Coleman Report.
