Why Greater Commercial Lending?

Greater Commercial Lending (GCL) is a credit organization that brings together banks, credit unions, and other lenders to provide U.S. government-guaranteed loans to businesses and initiatives in rural and under-served markets throughout the U.S. and its territories. It helps finance key infrastructure services, like power, renewable energy, transportation, and fiber optics, as well as schools, hospitals, restaurants, agriculture, hotels, and manufacturers. GCL partners with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), which guarantee loans, to arrange credit at favorable terms. GCL’s network of lenders includes hundreds of banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions.
