Village Bank is instrumental in the startup and entrepreneurial community. They’ve partnered with local non-profit, UnBoundRVA, to help empower low-income individuals through the opportunity to become the owner of their own business.

Taking their sincerity to action, Village Bank has worked with UnBoundRVA to develop funding models and to provide invaluable mentorship for these emerging business owners. With eight businesses being funded through a collateralized revolving loan fund, they stand behind their belief that business owners are more than a number, they’re neighbors.

Last year, at our June 3rd Friday Forum, RMA had the pleasure of meeting Royal McCargo. Royal was able to start his own business with the assistance of Unbound RVA and Village Bank. Pictured in this photo from left to right is Nancy Thomas, RMA, Shannon Shaw, Village Bank, Royal McCargo of 1010 Post Construction, LLC., Megan Murray, Unbound RVA, and Sarah Williams, Senior VP at Village Bank and Unbound RVA Board Member.  

We are proud to be community partners with Village Bank as we continue to be a resource for local businesses, together.
