EAW 18: Pandemic Loan Programs for Small Businesses

Updated: Apr 27, 2020

In this podcast, we discuss the CARES Act programs created for small businesses after the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). We had the opportunity to interview two bankers in the Central Florida market Chris Cucci and Marshall Harris. They shared tons of valuable nuggets regarding the loan programs and we also used the opportunity to discuss commercial real estate. We chatted on how the banks are using loan forbearance programs to help borrowers having financial difficulties. Chris also shared what we can expect in the new normal. Both bankers contact information is below. Enjoy Like and Subscribe.
