BCL is proud and grateful to have worked with the SBA to adapt to the new guidelines and rapidly accommodate the influx of PPP applicants. During the month of May, we dispersed our largest volume of small business loans ever in such a short period of time. In total, we loaned over $4.8 million to nearly 200 small businesses across the state during the second round of the Paycheck Protection Program.Read More
Before covid-19 hit, veteran-owned business Eagle Pride Supply was going strong - growing their business revenue 24-fold over just a couple of years. As an essential business providing supplies for government contracts and more, owner Patrick Myers was ready to weather the storm. But as smaller businesses shut down, suppliers tightened credit, and the consumer spending slowed, the effects of the prolonged shutdown began to affect his business too.Read More
BCL processed just over $1,000,000 of PPP loans within hours of the Round 2 PPP opening. As promised, the SBA staggered the submission process to allow smaller non-profits and community banks a first opportunity to submit our loans for approval. The race to get PPP funding was slowed down so that small businesses could have ample time to get their documentation to their lenders. And unlike the first round of PPP that was allocated within a few days, there is PPP capital available and BCL is here to help with your application.Read More
In a political climate where grant dollars and subsidies are dwindling, many nonprofit organizations are finding it difficult to stay sustainable and continue to deliver much-needed services to their community, having to turn to alternative funds, such as borrowed capital, to follow through on their mission. As Director of Community Development for BCL of Texas, I recognize that when organizations must take on debt to continue their programs, that debt must be as flexible and affordable as possible in order to reduce the burden on those the organization is committed to serve.Read More

If you want to start a business, you’ve probably thought of using your savings, asking friends and family for help, putting expenses on your credit card, and applying for a traditional bank loan. The first two options work well, provided you’ve got a little socked away and your nearest and dearest believe in your dreams as much as you do. The third could put your personal credit in serious jeopardy, not to mention racking up some crazy interest charges. The fourth, traditional bank loans, aren’t always easy to come by when you’re an entrepreneur (perhaps surprisingly). That’s where microloans come into the picture.Read More
In all the headlines about destruction and rebuilding in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, one narrative is consistently missing: the small Texas towns outside of the Houston area that are dealing with the same devastating impacts, but with less infrastructure, less national attention, and less support.Read More
