CUNA Lending Council White Paper Discusses Merchant Lending

Madison, WI - The market opportunity for indirect merchant lending is plentiful and the advantages of indirect merchant lending seem clear: credit unions can provide members with loans when and where they need them. What's more, credit unions can expand their lending portfolios and acquire new members simultaneously.

A new white paper, "Merchant Lending: Indirect Loan Opportunities" published by the CUNA Lending Council, explores:

  • The market opportunity for merchant lending
  • The competition for merchant lending
  • The economic environment and its effect on merchant lending programs
  • Best practices from indirect auto lending
  • Considerations for implementing a lifestyle/merchant lending program
  • A one-to-one interview with Sandi Carangi

CUNA Council members are eligible to receive complimentary copies of this, and over 300 other white papers; non-Council members may purchase white papers for $50 per copy.

The paper is available online in the white paper section of

Press may contact Natalie Sherry at for a copy of the white paper.
