The U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners and others from all 50 states during National Small Business Week. During the week of May 1, the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners are recognized. 

We’ve been celebrating our small business customers this week in Kansas City! How does Arvest help small businesses? In Kansas City, Arvest works with the community to provide resources and education to our small business owners.

“We offer free education classes throughout the year through our relationship with Central Exchange and with SolveKC. We have been able to highlight some of our customers to help deliver this education including CPA’s, networking experts and marketing firms. Our relationships with our businesses truly go beyond banking products,” said Arvest Business Banking Manager Monica Dahl. 
We asked our business banking team in Kansas City “What do you like about working with small businesses?” Here’s what they had to say!
“Nothing is more exciting than meeting with a new business and hearing about their dreams, vision, and business plan and then working with them and watching them grow. I’m so proud of these business owners who stepped out of the box and followed their dreams.” –Carolyn Rouchka 
“I love working with small businesses because I get to be a part of their dreams coming true.” –Rene Purtee
“Small business owners are my neighbors and friends in Ottawa and Gardner. It is great being able to provide financing and personally watch their businesses thrive and grow. It is banking at its best.” –Ed York
“I like the ability to work directly with the owner because they are most passionate about their business. I love hearing the story of their business and what fuels their drive. Working with the business, I help connect the owner to other resources and people in the community and have a direct impact on the business that is visible and truly makes a difference in their lives and the lives of their employees.” –Monica Dahl 
“I love working with our small business owners, because each of them are so unique. I enjoy getting to know the owner’s first, even before getting to know their business. Being able to work with our small business customers is such an honor – we get to help make dreams come true.” –Cherith Rone
We’d like to recognize all of our small business customers — we appreciate you and all you do for the community!
