    I like the First National Bank of Atmore. Been there a while. They treat me nice, and when it comes to a loan, they looked at me and my situation instead of just my credit score. They knew why I had problems on my credit report from medical bills, and they knew I would pay them back. I like a human making loan decisions.

    PLus they are nicer people.
