How to get the most from consumer banking for your small businessRetail banking services such as checking and savings accounts, certificates of deposit (CDs), personal or business loans and investments help you learn to manage your money wisely. Consumer banks work directly with the consumers rather than through corporations or other banks.
Local branches of larger commercial banks give you an opportunity to get the strong customer service and relationships of a small bank with the resources of a large one.
