SAN ANTONIO – The $3.4 billion Security Service Federal Credit Union, headquartered in San Antonio, will start offering small business credit and debit cards through a card services program offered by the Southwest Business Corporation. The credit lines that SSFCU will offer small business members will count against the credit union’s business lending cap, according to John Worthington, vice president with the credit union.
