Beecher, IL (April 1, 2020)—In honor of ICBA Community Banking Month in April, First Community Bank and Trust and the Independent Community Bankers of America® (ICBA) are shining a spotlight on community banks’ role in fostering economic prosperity and meeting the needs of consumers and local communities through expansion and innovation. “As a local small business invested in building a legacy of prosperity for our customers, First Community Bank and Trust invites our local residents to give us a call and see how we can help them on their journey to financial independence as part of our mission to create stronger, more vibrant communities—one loan at a time,” says Greg Ohlendorf, President and CEO of First Community Bank and Trust Community banks take in local deposits and redistribute them back into the community—making more than 60 percent of small-business loans and more than 80 percent of agriculture loans.
