Bank2 specifically aims to serve Native American small businesses and individuals not only across Oklahoma but the entire country. The bank has a special focus on the Oklahoma City area and the 13-county jurisdictional area of the Chickasaw Nation in south central Oklahoma, a minor urban area. Many of Bank2's clients are minorities; about 53 percent of its clients are Native Americans. A total of 15 percent of Bank2 clients have a household income at or below 80 percent of the area median income.

Impact

Since its inception in 2002, Bank2 has significantly impacted small business and has made homeownership a reality for many who would not have been able to secure a mortgage elsewhere. The bank has made hundreds of small business loans totaling $10s of millions. In the area of housing, Bank2 has financed over 1,000 housing units and has developed or rehabbed 500 single-family homes. These efforts have benefited the lives of thousands of clients. Although Bank2 is only based in Oklahoma its work has impacted every state except Alaska.
