The $2.3 billion CU announced March 30 it has funded more than $200 million in business loans. Eastern Financial Florida CU’s commercial underwriting and business loan servicing is offered through its subsidiary, CU Business Capital LLC. “We were one of the first credit unions in Florida to offer business loans,” said Gary Lanier, senior vice president. “Since we launched three years ago our goal was to be right around $200 million and we have hit that target.” Lanier said the CU has made loans for small retail business franchises to larger income generating properties “and everything in between.” Business deposits grew roughly 50% from 2005 to 2006 to $20 million, he added.

Formed in 2005, CU Business Capital now serves 22 CUs nationwide, with plans to add an additional 20 new clients before the end of 2007, the CUSO said.
