Having tapped the individual market, predatory lenders are now targeting small businesses. Small business owners often have difficultly accessing capital. This makes them particularly vulnerable to predatory lenders. Minnesota has some of the weakest predatory lending regulations in the nation. In the past and current sessions, legislators in both the House and Senate are siding with powerful lobbyists instead of small businesses. Contact your House representative and your Senator and ask that they pass the predatory lender bill.
