"Fifth Third helped us every step of the way, making sure we can be there for the women we help."
"I have a small OB/GYN practice in Michigan, and I was uncertain if I'd qualify for the PPP loan we needed to keep on going. Marybeth Brandabur, a banker at Fifth Third, helped us every step of the way, making sure we can be there for the women we help, the babies who’ll be born, and the families they’ll join. The positive effects of Marybeth's help will be far reaching."
– Jonathan Cayle, MD, Michigan
"Fifth Third was crucial in my ability to secure a PPP loan as a self‑employed individual."
"For over 40 years, I’ve been performing all over the world, but as a result of COVID-19, I was out of work for the first time in my life. The help and dedication of Fidel M. and Akbar G., Personal Bankers at Fifth Third, was crucial in my ability to secure a PPP loan, even as a self-employed individual. I could not have made this happen without their help."
– David C., Columbus
"Fifth Third made it possible for our staff to continue serving the most vulnerable people in our community."
"I'm the Executive Director of the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention, a nonprofit in Indianapolis focused on ending homelessness. When we became worried about staying afloat, Jacob B., a Business Banking Relationship Manager at Fifth Third Bank, helped us apply for the PPP loan we needed. Fifth Third made it possible for our staff to continue serving vulnerable people in our community."
