Commercial Loan Growth Improves This Year

The annual growth in commercial and industrial loans at large U.S. commercial banks has been trending upward since early 2010, and has been above 16% for the last seven weeks starting in late January, see chart above.  The last time C&I loan growth was above 16% for that many consecutive weeks was the summer of 2008.

I assume it is still very hard for small businesses to get a loan.

Where have people been getting loans for the last couple of years for small business ventures?

Peer-to-Peer Lending.

Micro loan ventures such as and have been a key source.

Small loans from Prosper and Lending Club, of $2000 to $25,000, are assembled from indivduals investing as little as $25.

I forgot to give attribution, on my comment above, to this AEI article on Crowd Funding, as pointer to Prosper.

You see, unlike the naysayers, America's banks are in a huge delusion, and don;t know they are going to get paid back in Confederate currency at best, or, more likely, all those new loans are going bust.

This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I love seeing websites that understand the value of providing a quality resource for free. It’s the old what goes around comes around routine. Did you acquired lots of links and I see lots of trackbacks??
