Coronavirus (COVID-19): Relief options and Additional Resources

Joseph Bator of Primary Bank, Bedford, is SBA’s New Hampshire Financial Champion of the Year

Joseph Bator is the Executive Vice President and Senior Lender at Primary Bank located in Bedford NH, where he is second in command and responsible for all lending and commercial banking functions of the Bank.

“I am humbled to be honored with this award.  I am only one of many people who do great things to help small businesses. During the financial crisis in 2008-2009 I learned the true value that SBA plays in helping our small businesses.  They were ready then providing recovery loans with no fees and I was able to help so many small businesses survive that crisis that needed access to capital.  It is no surprise in the current pandemic that the SBA is again at the forefront helping small businesses survive and keeping people employed.  Just last week a small business owner called me concerned that they would not be able to make their loan payment because of the shutdown.  I told them not to worry, the SBA would be making their payment for them for the next 6 months.  I could hear my borrower crying at the news so relieved that one less bill would be piling up.  This is what being a local banker and using the SBA is all about,” explained Joe.
