Banks play a crucial role in supporting local economies by helping small businesses expand and thrive. If small businesses are the engines that drive our communities forward, then banks, especially community banks, provide the fuel for those engines. Plumas Bank has spent more than 40 years powering small and medium-sized businesses in the region.
Plumas Bank is a locally managed, full-service community bank with 15 locations in northeastern California and Nevada, including Yuba City. Plumas Bank has succeeded thanks to a consistent focus on relationship-based banking. Local business advisers and lenders have deep relationships in the communities where they work.
Jag Madare, Vice President, Ag/Commercial Loan Officer at Plumas Bank’s Yuba City office, is one of the many experts that works one-on-one with clients and delivers experienced business insights to small businesses owners. Madare was born in Yuba City and raised in nearby Live Oak on a walnut, persimmon, and almond farm. He attended Sacramento State to earn his bachelor’s degree in finance. Madare, who speaks both English and Punjabi, has helped numerous businesses and farm operations obtain the financing they need to grow and thrive; he enjoys working at a community bank because he is able to help those small businesses that may be overlooked by the larger national banks.
Plumas Bank expanded its geographic footprint in recent years, including the opening of a full-service branch in Chico which complements its other branch locations along the Highway 99 Corridor in Yuba City and Redding. This growth allows Plumas Bank to serve even more small business clients in the region.
In addition to its branch locations and commercial lending services, Plumas Bank is a preferred lender with the US Small Business Administration and supports SBA loans in seven western states including California, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Colorado and Utah.
