‘Move Money’ is the Treasurer’s initiative to help tax-payer funds get directed to Massachusetts community banks, such as Century Bank. Previously this fund used to be deposited with large out-of-state banks. The funds can help to stimulate ‘growth engines’ of MSMEs. Small businesses can find the much needed finance for its expansion.
Century has joined the mission to help small businesses grow. Thirty banks have already signed to this innovative program. Treasurer Steven Grossman says, “Joining with Century Bank is another great step forward for the Small Business Banking Partnership.” The partnership will definitely bring more loans to Massachusetts banks that will later on be directed to Massachusetts small businesses.
