Women-Owned Small Businesses
Texas ranks no. 2 in the country for growth of women-owned businesses. Governor Greg Abbott recently wrote a guest post on Forbes.com expressing his commitment to help Texas become no.1.
"Women business owners are a powerful economic force, and my goal is to make Texas the most welcoming home for them. There are over 9.4 million women-owned businesses in the nation, employing over 7.9 million people and generating nearly $1.5 trillion in revenues according to the 2015 State of Women-Owned Businesses study from American Express OPEN and Womenable. Women are now majority owners of nearly one in three U.S. firms, and 887 net new women-owned enterprises open every day."
American National Bank of Texas has been working within the community for over 140 years, and we are proud to support entrepreneurial women across North Texas. We want to partner with you to help grow and sustain your business — whether it’s a small business banking account built to meet your needs or an SBA loan to help increase your working capital. We are a community bank, where decisions are made locally, providing the best options for small business owners. We know North Texas, its unique needs and the exciting opportunities that exist in our region.
Small business owners need a bank that is an SBA lender.
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is committed to fostering economic growth by providing assistance to small businesses that are located in its area of operation. One of the ways they accomplish this goal is by providing financial assistance to new and existing business through a variety of guaranteed loans. The special loans are only available only to approved lenders, such as ANBTX.
We can walk you through the SBA loan application process and explain which SBA loans are available to you.

Small business owners need a bank that understands the region.
Small businesses are closely tied to the region where they operate. Likewise, when you partner with a bank, you want decision-makers who are familiar with the community where you operate.
Some banks are "local" in name only. However, ANBTX is based in Terrell and does business through several branches across North Texas. We know this area, and we’re happy to help you thrive here.

Small business owners need convenient accounts and services.
You want a small business bank that can offer the same benefits and services of a larger institution. ANBTX is just the right size to provide the best of both worlds. We offer a great range of accounts and services.
Small business checking - Some small business owners decide not to separate their personal banking account from their company's account. They figure that they are "too small" to have a bank account. However, even in the earliest stages, you don’t want to mingle your personal and business funds.
Our small business checking account includes: business debit card, online banking and bill pay, return of check images, and an easy to balance monthly statement.
