Cambridge Savings Bank Receives Two SBA Awards

Cambridge Savings Bank (CSB) is pleased to announce that it was named both the #1 Lender to New Businesses and the #1 Lender to Retail Industry by the Small Business Administration (SBA) for its commitment to the Commonwealth in what is being called an unprecedented year.

Cambridge Savings Bank works with the SBA to provide financial assistance to small businesses through government-backed loans. 2020 proved to be a very tough year for many small businesses due to the pandemic, and Cambridge Savings Bank was honored to assist so many new and existing businesses. Cambridge Savings Bank had 65% of its loan approvals assist new businesses, while 25% of its approvals went to businesses in the retail trade.

“We are honored to receive these designations,” said David Cedrone, Head of Consumer & Small Business Lending. “We understand the importance of local small business growth and want to do our part to see new businesses open and existing businesses flourish. Small Businesses are the backbone of a community and are a true testament to economic strength.”

The SBA serves as a go-to resource and voice for small businesses backed by the strength of the federal government.  Cambridge Savings Bank is pleased to be a preferred partner. To learn more about ways Cambridge Savings Bank can assist you, visit
