Economic and CU Monitor (Special Topic: Member Business Loans) - May 2015

This month's special topic: 

Member Business Loans

During the recession, credit unions provided a vital source of credit to small businesses. Even as banks were scaling back on small business loans, credit union lending continued to expand, keeping countless small businesses afloat (see chart). Nevertheless, the arbitrary MBL cap has forced many credit unions to curtail lending in recent years.

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.
