Marys Peak True Value
Marys Peak True Value

Our business lending and economic development efforts aim to encourage new employment opportunities and promote a stable and diversified economy in the Southern Willamette Valley and Central Oregon Coast.


We deliver professional commercial loan packaging, closing, servicing and collection services through various direct and indirect loan programs. We also provide administrative services, technical assistance and professional lending services through contractual relationships to local government and non-profit entities that offer economic development oriented commercial loans.


The goal of our lending program is to foster economic development by providing access to capital for small business owners, for either start-up or expansion needs. This gives businesses the opportunity and capacity to play an important role in determining their futures. Ultimately it means the creation of more jobs in our communities.



In addition to operating four local loan programs, we provide lending expertise to several other non-profit and governmental entities that offer business loans, including Cascades West Financial Services, Inc., a private, non-profit Certified Development Corporation (CDC).  Through the CDC our lending staff can also provide loan packaging and servicing for:
