ICYMI: CBS 13 News Notes SAFE's Impact on West Sacramento's Economic Development

Folsom, Calif. – (June 7, 2024) – In a story Thursday about West Sacramento businesses prepping for the Oakland A’s  upcoming move to the Capital Region, CBS 13 News  highlighted SAFE’s Credit Union's commitment to economic development in the area.

The credit union's commercial loan team recently assisted the Ernesto Delgado Hospitality Group to purchase the property of West Sacramento’s historic  Sal’s Tacos, on the corner of 4th and C streets near the I Street bridge, with a Small Business Administration (SBA) 504 loan.

Watch the story.

Reporter Rachel Wulff  interviewed SAFE Credit Union Senior Business Development Officer Eric Grabin about how the investment in the treasured restaurant is supporting the community and about how the credit union supports businesses with loan products. 

"One of the resources we that have is working with the Small Business Development Center here in Northern California," says Grabin. "We can help put business plans, projections – put the whole loan package together."

The SBA 504 loan program allows for commercial real estate financing at good market rate terms. In most cases, the loans require a 10% down payment towards commercial purchases.

In addition to consumer services, and unlike many credit unions in the region, SAFE offers business services including commercial loan products.
