Got a dream? We’re here to listen!
David Muir came to MutualBank with a dream of a better life. He started 2008 as an unemployed “victim” of the Great Recession but ended the year with a plan for a business of his own. Muir and his wife, Michelle, decided to open a winery. The Mutual team was there to help.
Muir was referred to MutualBank by Alan Steele of the Small Business Development Corporation. Steele served as a mentor while Muir carefully assembled the components of his start-up plan. At the same time, Steele had been meeting with Client Relationship Manager, Vince Turner, to explore potential financing for innovative start-up businesses. The Muirs seemed to be a match.
Not long after, Vince introduced the Muirs to Kathy Sears of the Business Banking department. Kathy recognized the Muirs as strong candidates for an SBA loan. Soon the process was under way. It was not long before the Muirs were breaking ground.
As opening day approached, the partnership between the Muirs and Mutual continued to grow. Business checking accounts, merchant services, business debit cards - Mutual was there every step of the way.
Earlier this year, when the Dunlap financial center, in Goshen, Indiana, hosted a customer appreciation event, Fruit Hills Winery was there to serve! The Muir’s shelves are now stocked with original labels and customers are arriving from three states away to sample their wares.
Two years ago, Mutual told the Muirs to go ahead.
Today, they are living a better life.
Come share your dream with us. We want to hear it.
