SAN ANTONIO (5/14/09)--Randolph-Brooks FCU (RBFCU) was named the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Lender of the Year. The credit union will be recognized for the award during National Small Business Week in Washington, D.C., next week (San Antonio Business Journal May 13). Kenan Pankau, RBFCU business services lending manager, will accept the award and attend a panel meeting at the White House to discuss the financial climate. RBFCU began offering SBA loans in 2006. The SBA’s lending programs help business owners who may be overlooked by larger business lenders, Pankau said. As of December, 204 credit unions had SBA loans outstanding, according to Credit Union National Association research. RBFCU, based in Universal City, Texas, has more than $3 billion in assets.
