European Parliamentarians Support Increasing Credit Union Business Lending
BRUSSELS The European Parliament Credit Union Interest Group met on 7 November with the European Network of Credit Unions to discuss how the European Union can promote increased business lending to small and medium-enterprises by credit unions. Credit unions have a long history of business lending in Europe beginning in the 1850s with agricultural loans. Today, European credit unions have billions of Euros in available lending capacity that can be used to provide credit to small and medium-sized businesses in a number of European Union member states.
