The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), an agency that protects consumers from harmful finance practices, will begin collecting information on small business lending practices from lenders across the U.S.

To do this they need to hear from small business owners about the obstacles they face in financing their businesses. By sharing your story with the CFPB, you help them better understand business owner needs.

Please complete this survey by July 15th. Thank you for your participation
