“Truliant is very proud of the work we do to support small businesses in the communities we serve,” said Marc Schaefer, Truliant President and CEO. “Credit unions have been extremely active in ensuring that small-business owners have the resources they need to grow and create jobs, As a small business lender, Truliant’s loan programs extend beyond standard financing by providing flexible terms to help owners grow their business, hire employees and support working capital. Additionally, Truliant recently achieved preferred lender status by the U.S. Small Business Administration and was recognized as a top small business lender in North Carolina.
