Announcing the "We've Got Your Back" loan program


WALLA WALLA – Over the past 150 years, Baker Boyer has stood by our community and will now stand by our Federal Employees during this government shutdown by extending unsecured credit of up to one month’s net pay, up to $10,000. The “We’ve Got Your Back” loan program will have simplified qualifying terms and be available to any Federal Employee impacted by the government shutdown if they are on furlough, working without pay, or have experienced any direct financial impact due to the lack of monthly payroll income.

President and CEO, Mark Kajita explained, “Having been a child of parents who worked as Federal Employees, I know how financially difficult times can get when there is a federal government shutdown." He elaborated,

"This program is designed to help those employees affected by this current shutdown make payments on bills such as mortgages, child-care, food, and other essentials to make their lives just that much more stress-free. Baker Boyer has your back!”

To be eligible for the program, applicants must reside within the communities we serve but do not need to be a current Baker Boyer customer. 

Kajita reiterated, “We want to make this process as quick and painless as possible so our Federal Employees can feel more secure about their future. Baker Boyer’s Legacy is to be there for the communities we serve when they need us the most, this is just the next step of that Legacy.”
