“Following rejection of my initial SBA Loan Application, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos and staff were among those I turned to for help to receive SBA Loan Assistance, as an Independent Contractor for Hildebrand Amusement Rides, which has been shut down for 16 weeks and counting due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Their efforts complemented those within the SBA of Charles Carroll, SBA Attorney Adviser, Office of Disaster Assistance; Geoffrey Misilo, SBA Contractor for Customer Service; and Jo Eckert, SBA Branch Manager, Cedar Rapids Iowa District Branch Office

Having recently moved to Rock Island, Illinois from Davenport, Iowa, I also turned to and received assistance from Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley and his staff member.”
