In celebration of the Bank of Greene County’s new Kinderhook-Valatie Branch, the Bank has pledged $5 million in low-interest loans to support future business investment in Valatie, Kinderhook, and the surrounding area.  This branch is the Bank’s 6th Columbia County location.

Don Gibson, President & CEO stated: “This program is designed to support local business entrepreneurs and spur investment in their business ventures and expansions. We believe in the Kinderhook-Valatie market, and our deep involvement and commitment to the community is a central part of our business philosophy.  The Bank is set up with a unique structure that ensures our independence, because being local and staying local is very important to us.  We were founded in 1889, and are celebrating our 130th Anniversary this year.  We are excited to be joining the Kinderhook-Valatie community, and look forward to celebrating many anniversaries at the new branch.”

These loans are specifically designed to help businesses purchase locations for their operations, improve, or build on premises that they currently own.  These loans are designed to spur economic growth in the Northern Columbia County market.
