Economic and CU Monitor (Special Topic: MBLs and Commercial Lending) - July 2017

This month's special topic: 

Member Business Loans (MBLs) and Commercial Lending

Credit unions have been an important source of credit for American consumers since the Great Depression—often willing to lend when the banks would not. More recently, as the economy struggled to recover from the 2007-2010 Great Recession, credit unions acted as a key source of credit for small businesses. Once more, credit unions were willing to lend when banks would not.

NAFCU's Economic and CU Monitor is a NAFCU member-only monthly report of the latest macroeconomic and financial trends affecting today's credit unions, including trend data among NAFCU member credit unions.
