Rising demand for quick access to cash and limited access to traditional bank credit products have led many consumers to turn to nontraditional lenders for their short-term, small-dollar lending needs. By addressing the needs of these consumers, financial institutions can gain long-term accountholders and create a reliable noninterest, controlled-risk revenue stream.

In the past, regulatory guidance made it prohibitive for financial institutions to offer small-dollar lending. New guidance now encourages financial institutions to offer small-dollar lending solutions, which can increase their wallet share, improve customer satisfaction and position organizations as leaders in consumer-focused, next-generation financial solutions. And consumers are looking for these cash flow options today.
