Line of Credit
In 2012, National Cooperative Bank (NCB) reported a banner year in lending activity for its cooperative housing division, providing $962 million in building finance for 511 properties nationwide. These communities used the funds for needs ranging from refinancing existing debt to undertaking capital improvements. One cooperative, St. Francis Square Cooperative, Inc located in San Francisco, CA opted to reduce their carbon footprint and implement a new solar power electric system. For the Bank, arranging loans that supports the ‘greening’ of cooperatives furthers its mandate to be a socially-responsible institution dedicated to making a positive impact on the communities it serves.
