Customer Testimonial

  • Clear Mountain Bank did a superb job in getting us the PPP loan quickly. They were very efficient, willing to take the time to answer all of our questions, making the process so much easier than we could have imagined.

  • We felt a dramatic impact. We were closed for almost 3 months. We have re-opened with restrictions and have seen a slow increase in the ability of our clients to come back. Obtaining our PPP Loan through Clear Mountain Bank was easy! Jesse Bumps supported every step of the way in getting the necessary documents in order.

  • Obtaining a PPP Loan from Clear Mountain Bank played a substantial role in our business being able to survive the pandemic. We are very appreciative of all of their hard work, extra effort and late night hours from their entire business team in helping us, as well as so many local businesses.

  • In dental school, we had very little training on how to run a business. So when we had to close our practice for the pandemic, we were exceptionally nervous about what was going to come of our practice. Luckily, Jesse Bumps reached out to us and helped us make the decision to do the PPP loan. I had been in touch with several colleagues across the country who had an arduous experience obtaining the loan, so I was anxious going into it. However, Jesse and the team at CMB make the process easy and smooth! I am thankful for everyone at CMB for helping us pick up right where we left off so our patients could receive the care they deserve. Thanks!!!

  • The PPP loan helped keep my business going. I had been shut down due to Covid for 6 weeks. I owed $4000, for rent the day I was allowed to re-open! My sales have definitely dropped due to people staying home! The PPP loan was a life saver and I am truly appreciative for the assistance.

    Kathy Bryan, Owner
    Cool Kids Consignment
  • As trusted advisors to small businesses and individuals thru out north central WV, the primary impact of the pandemic was being able to continue providing timely service in the absence of face to face contact. Tim and his staff provided clear and concise instruction, had a solid understanding of ever changing rules and requirements, and were committed to the highest level of customer service thru the whole process.

    Denny & Alastranos, PLLC
  • The PPP Loan meant that we could continue working during this pandemic that has left so many people without a job. I am an Owner/Operator so not only did the PPP Loan keep me from losing my business; it kept me and my employees all working during this very trying time.

  • COVID-19 forced us to curtail operation and we were affected by reduced business. The PPP allowed us to stay open and support our staff with continuity of salary. Clear Mountain Bank, and specifically, Mr. Keith Morgan, was very helpful with information and assisting in our application filing. He was able to answer our questions and simplified the process.

    Dr. Pat Esposito

  • Clear Mountain Bank made the process go smoothly. We were able to cover payroll to keep men working.
