Small Business Lending
FDIC's Small Business Lending Survey
The Small Business Lending Survey is a nationally-representative survey of U.S. banks and their small business lending practices. The report of survey findings offers new information for both small and large banks on many aspects of their small business lending. The results provide context for the implications of current bank consolidation trends on U.S. small businesses. Approximately 1,200 banks—more than one-sixth of the FDIC-insured institutions in the United States—responded to the survey.Small Business Lending Survey Report
