Predatory Lending Awareness Campaign

With the spread of COVID-19 and its subsequent effects on the economy and small businesses in particular, entrepreneurs and business owners are in dire need of capital. While CAMEO, our members, and colleagues are working around the clock to facilitate access to loans, grants, and other funding, we know many small businesses will turn to online loan products.

Plenty of online lending companies are reputable and transparent, but it is hard to tell which products are predatory and can put businesses in a more precarious position than they are right now.

We developed a social media toolkit to help borrowers discern the true costs of online loans and how to find a loan product that best fits their needs. Please help us spread the word!
