​     “We congratulate Linda McMahon on her confirmation today and look forward to working with her and the SBA to provide credit that helps grow jobs across the country.
 
     “Banks are strong supporters of the SBA Advantage and SBA Grow loan programs and back increased funding to ensure small businesses have access to affordable credit. Small businesses are essential for communities to thrive, and we’re eager to build upon the growth-oriented cooperation between SBA and the banking industry.”
