BankVista is excited to announce we have received the 2019 Minnesota SBA Lender of the Year award. We’d like to thank our team for their hard work and dedication. From customer service to our expert lenders, we couldn’t do it without you! 

We’d also like to thank the small businesses in our community for trusting us with your business banking needs. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you and our community together. Small businesses are the backbone of our community. That's why we work to offer them financing they need to thrive.

As a Preferred SBA Lender, at BankVista we work with the U.S. Small Business Administration offering these special loan programs. If your business can't qualify for traditional lending, talk to a BankVista commercial lender who can go over additional options with you.
