Small Business Lending is Up!

loans-are-upLending to small businesses is up for the first time in 10 quarters, according to a report released by the Small Business Administration this month.

Lenders reported that they had eased lending standards for both commercial and industrial (C&I) loans as well as commercial real estate (CRE) loans. But while terms for C&I loans have loosened, terms for CRE loans have remained relatively tight—despite increasing demand for them.

Leading the charge in terms of loans to small businesses in 2012 was Wells Fargo, which lent a total of $32.8 billion.

Here’s a list of the top 10 lenders to small businesses for 2012 according to the report:

  1. Wells Fargo: $32.8 billion, 664,542 loans
  2. Bank of America: $26.2 billion, 376,625 loans
  3. JPMorgan Chase: $19.8 billion, 1,357,168 loans
  4. American Express Bank: $16.9 billion, N/A
  5. U.S. Bank: $13.8 billion, 669,904 loans
  6. PNC Bank: $9.9 billion, 215,083 loans
  7. Branch Banking and Trust Co.: $9.1 billion, 301,650 loans
  8. Citibank: $9.1 billion, 1,911,687 loans
  9. Regions Banks: $6.9 billion, 59,487 loans
