ABOUT US

PARTNERING TO PUT BUSINESSES FIRST

Founded in 1999 through a unique collaboration between Fox Communities Credit Union, Verve, a Credit Union, and Prospera Credit Union, BLG is proof that cooperation leads to a thriving business community. Seeking to open up even greater commercial lending possibilities for business members, these three credit union partners agreed to work together, sharing lending risk while remaining competitors, a relationship requiring trust and openness. Now a uniquely cooperative commercial lender with a $575+ million portfolio of over 1200 loans, BLG offers businesses powerful financing solutions backed by the credit unions they trust.

BLG’S MISSION

Business Lending Group is committed to providing high-quality business lending services through a comprehensive infrastructure of services including but not limited to policy creation, sound underwriting, accurate documenting, diligent servicing, exceptional customer service and ongoing loan administration.
