Working with a banker who will take time to get to know you. That’s One Smart Move!

When Mike Draper, owner of Des Moines-based RAYGUN, decided to open a store in Iowa City, he was surprised when his bank in Des Moines turned down his loan. Thankfully, MidWestOne Bank was able to step in and help make his Iowa City location a reality.

“Our bank here in Des Moines would not loan us money, which was a surprise, and we needed money to open a store,” said Draper. “MidWestOne not only approved us, but I really liked working with our banker on a personal level. And so we have worked with them ever since. They gave us advice on where they thought we would succeed and over time they have been interested in the business overall.”

When you partner with MidWestOne, you work with smart, connected business bankers who are dedicated to helping you succeed.
