In its eighteenth report on small business lending patterns, the Massachusetts Community & Banking Council (MCBC) provides an analysis of small business lending across the state with an emphasis on low-income and traditionally underserved areas. The report also reviews changes in economic conditions and other factors that effect small business lending.
Small Business Lending in Massachusetts, 2007-2015 analyzes 2015 lending data of loans of $1 million or less collected under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) along with quarterly Call Report data. In addition to the data in the report, MCBC is also providing data on all Massachusetts cities and towns in a set of on-line tables. The report was prepared for MCBC by Stuart Ryan of BankMaps LLC.
