Federal Reserve Small Business Credit Survey

The Federal Reserve released their first report from the 2018 Small Business Credit Survey. The 2019 Report on Employer Firms takes a look at the financial health and employment needs of small businesses with payroll jobs. Key findings include:
  • Revenue and employment continue to grow
  • Fewer employers expect to hire more workers
  • Demand for financing from online lenders is growing and dwarfing demand from other sources

Success at The MicroLenders Forum

On April 23, 2019, more than 60 microlenders and other lending stakeholders gathered for one of our favorite events – the MicroLenders Forum – at the Google Foundation.
We had great speakers talking to us about the economy, microlending tips, and two extremely interesting topics: impact investment and Opportunity Zones. Read our latest blog post to get all the details of what went down at the event!
