"Small business is a priority for Huntington, and we remain committed to continuing to create innovative ways to help small business owners," Huntington retail and business banking director Mary Navarro said.
Among the Huntington six-state service area, Ohio businesses obtained the greatest number of business loans. Approximately 15,400 businesses in that state obtained a loan.
About 800 West Virginia small businesses have received loans since 2010.
Some local businesses received startup or expansion financing through the program.
Those included the West Virginia Dermatology and Skin Surgery Center in South Charleston, the soon-to-open Charleston Brewing Co. in downtown Charleston and Teays Dental Care in Hurricane.
In addition to the Ohio and West Virginia businesses, 5,200 small businesses in Michigan, 1,800 in Indiana, 1,300 in western Pennsylvania and 400 in Kentucky received loans from the bank since 2010.
"We believe in the Midwest as a driver of the U.S. economy and are heartened by the positive economic news in our markets," Navarro said. "We look forward to continuing to be part of the region's job creation and economic recovery."
