HERNDON, Va., Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MainStreet Bank (OTC Bulletin Board: MNSB) reported net income of $250 thousand for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Chairman, President & CEO Jeff W. Dick said, "We've seen a pronounced slow-down in loan demand this year.  It's not that we've adjusted our credit approval standards, it's that customers simply aren't borrowing. We're hoping to see a pick-up in loan demand during the second half of 2010."
