Audrey Kazer has been part-owner of Palmetto Village of Chester for the past 10 years. The opportunity came up for her to buy out her partner and become the sole owner of the business. At the same time, she sought funds to expand and upgrade the facilities at Palmetto Village of Chester. She had previously obtained a loan through FNB, and when conventional loans were not going to satisfy her business’ needs, she was introduced to our team to explore financing options through SBA lending. Using our small business lending expertise, we successfully created an SBA 7(a) loan package for her business expansion loan.

Here are Audrey’s own words regarding her experience working with FNB Small Business Finance:

FNB Small Business Finance was a driving force in this entire process. The team was very helpful in keeping everything on track. Anytime I had a question, they broke it down for me and explained things in such a way that made complete sense to me. FNB is a partner in my business – from coming to tour the site, to checking in on me often through phone calls and lunch, FNB remains very involved even though the loan has closed. I know I can come to them for anything because they have taken the time to understand my business. FNB Small Business Finance has done a phenomenal job being my business partner and I look forward to working with them again in the future!

Since closing on the loan in early 2016, work has begun on the upgrades to Palmetto Village of Chester. There are two main buildings on site, both of which are being renovated to become state-of-the-art facilities that will offer the best service possible to seniors in the community. We are happy to be business partners with Palmetto Village of Chester, and we can’t wait to see this company grow and succeed!
