Frederick W. Schmid, Jr., VP, SBA Business Development Officer

At Fidelity Bank, we have a passion for finding financing solutions for small businesses. In addition, we understand that small business plays a vital role in the overall U.S. economy. Our Small Business Administration (SBA) lending team is dedicated to continuing to foster that growth. SBA loans are guaranteed by the U.S. Small Business Administration and offer longer terms and lower down payments than conventional loans. As an SBA Preferred Lender, Fidelity Bank can approve most loan requests on behalf of the SBA, which means a faster turnaround time for loan funding.
