The Economy’s First Responders

Here’s to the entrepreneurs. The job creators. The innovators. The economy’s first responders. The world's largest economy is depending on you...but that's nothing new. So let’s do this.

 

Meet Diana Valera-Lema; Colombina Valera & Carmen Valera of Tamale House.

The brave leading ladies behind the half-century legacy of Tamale House are no stranger to adversity. Like most entrepreneurs, building a company that would stand the test of time through up and down cycles, location challenges, and more was truly remarkable. But COVID-19 put this iconic Austin restaurant at a new level of risk. Banking with two of the four big banks, you would have thought they had it made. They didn't. They realized they needed a community bank with a local banking champion like James Klingman answering their text messages at 4:00 am, giving their restaurant the fighting chance it deserved. That’s why they chose the Entrepreneur’s Bank, and why we are honored to play a small part in their success!

Thank you Vista Bank for basically saving our restaurant. When big banks, who we have done business with for decades, let us down, Vista Bank was there. Vista Bank supports female and minority entrepreneurs!
