Listing prepared from SBA data by Liza Potter with assistance from Bowen Park and Meredith Russell The following ranking lists, by state, the banks that were ranked the No. 1 and No. 2 small-business-friendly microlenders by the SBA. (In the case of a tie, the banks are listed alphabetically.)

We also provide information on the total number and dollar volume of microloans provided by each of these banks during the time period of the study (from June 1997 to June 1998).

In certain cases, banks were acquired or merged with other banks after this listing was compiled-to clear up any confusion, we list both the old and new names of the bank.
