Small Business Lending in Massachusetts, 2008-2017

May 28, 2019

In its 20th report on small business lending patterns, the Massachusetts Community & Banking Council (MCBC) provides an analysis of small business lending trends in minority neighborhoods in Massachusetts from 2008 to 2017 with comparisons to lending trends in majority white neighborhoods and with comparisons to local demographic characteristics. The primary goal of this report is to contribute to improved credit flows to small businesses across Massachusetts, particularly in minority neighborhoods, by presenting a careful description of small business lending trends.

The report was prepared for MCBC by Stuart Ryan of BankMaps LLC.
