IFA Small Business Lending Summit
How lenders and franchising can accelerate the economic recovery
As the nation pursues economic recovery and a return to job creation and growth, the International Franchise Association (IFA) is partnering with key stakeholders in the small business, financial and government policy/regulatory communities to unleash the power of small businesses and aspiring entrepreneurs.
The nation’s lenders continue to face a range of challenges related to increased government oversight, regulation, a stagnant economy and high unemployment. Regulators are extremely sensitive to public perceptions that the lack of previous policy and enforcement rigor contributed to the financial meltdown. However, a direct effect of that mindset is clearly evident in the overall lack of current credit access.
