Huntington hits milestone for SBA lending – here’s a breakdown by state

Huntington National Bank is the nation’s top small-business lender. The Columbus-based bank closed out its 2018 fiscal year with a 13.8 percent increase in Small Business Administration 7(a) loan originations. This is the 10th consecutive year the bank has been the nation’s busiest originator of SBA 7(a) loans.  SBA loans come with government backing so banks can extend credit to small businesses that can’t otherwise get conventional bank financing.
