Affordable, Responsible Loans for the Military: Programs and Prototypes

Agenda and Presentations
Wednesday, December 6, 2006

This template for an affordable, small-dollar loan program was developed by bankers who attended the December 6, 2006 FDIC Conference, “Affordable, Responsible Loans for the Military: Programs and Prototypes”. Conference participants agreed that the range of options it sets forth would be useful in developing a responsible small-dollar loan program suitable to both a bank and its military customers.
