Payday and Small Dollar Lending

Credit unions provide the safest and most affordable options for those in need of small dollar loans. Rules should be tailored to address predatory actors who abuse consumers. However, they should not inhibit credit unions from participating in this market and continuing to offer credit to members in need.
