MINNEAPOLIS (Business Wire) -- U.S. Bank, a decades-long supporter of small businesses through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) lending program, ended the 2013 SBA fiscal year on September 30 with $639 million in volume and 2,519 loans committed. The totals represent a 22 percent increase in dollar volume over 2012 and a 52 percent increase in the number of loans provided. U.S. Bank was the second largest SBA lender by volume in the country for 2013.

U.S. Bank ranked first in both units and volume in the SBA districts of Kentucky, Portland, Seattle/Spokane and Tennessee. In addition, the company also ranked first in units in Iowa, Kansas City, Minnesota, Nevada, San Diego, Santa Ana (Calif.) and St. Louis. U.S. Bank was in the top three in either units or volume in a total of 22 SBA districts.

“Small business lending continues to be a focus for U.S. Bank and the business we did through the SBA Division is testament to the hard work of all of our small business teams nationwide,” said Julie Huston, executive vice president for the small business segment at U.S. Bank. “Our bankers stood by small business owners when times were tough, and although the small business sector still faces economic headwinds, they are proving their resiliency through their drive to grow and expand their operations.”
