Congressman Cleaver Announces Initial Findings of Small Business Fintech Lending Investigation

Today, Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II announced the initial findings of his Small Business Fintech investigation launched in June. The initial findings underscore the need to safeguard against discriminatory pricing on loan products for minority-owned small businesses.
According to a Federal Reserve survey, roughly one-fifth of small businesses seek opportunities to raise capital from online lenders. Initial findings suggest that online small business loans are more likely to be utilized by minority-owned businesses. Many so-called “FinTech” lenders target these entrepreneurs with various products, including multi-year installment loans, as well as small business payday loans secured by credit card receivables. While small business loans are exempt from many of the protections afforded to consumers, these lenders are required to comply with anti-discrimination laws, such as the Equal Credit Opportunity Act.
