Salem Cooperative Services is seeking to raise funds to provide funding for a $200,000 loan for an expansion of the Salem Cooperative Bank.
Salem Cooperative Services, a Salem cooperative, recently applied for a loan to expand the bank.
The Salem Cooperative Development Bank, or SDCB, is a non-profit corporation that helps provide loans and grants to community development banks, and has been serving the Salem area since 1996.
The SDCb has since grown to more than 100 full-time employees.
The SDCs mission is to build the capacity of local, regional, and national development banks to support economic development, provide lending and financial services to underserved communities, and build a stronger and more resilient economy.SDCs goal is to serve and serve more than 150,000 people, with a target of 25,000.
The organization is in need of an additional $200 million for expansion, which it hopes to accomplish through partnerships with local, state, and federal governments.
“The SCCB serves as a bridge to community banks, as well as the Federal Reserve, which will provide financial support to build upon the bank’s assets,” the application said.
The organization has been seeking to expand its operations in Salem and is looking to partner with the Salem Community Bank to provide capital and funding to the SDC.
It is expected that the SCC Bank would provide financial assistance to the expansion of its branch and the bank would operate a local branch as well.
The new branch would be located at the intersection of U.S. Route 6 and the Salem Public Library, which would be the first Salem branch to be located in the region.
The group plans to open a branch in Salem this spring.
The application said that the organization will “continue to focus on our core mission of building community banks that serve and support underserved people.”
The application also said that SDCBS will use a $25,000 grant from the U.N. Development Program to expand services for the community.
