Small-business credit is positive, with a waning outlook
Q3 report findings
Talk of a trade deal helped to shape the narrative for the third quarter, but there is more at play for small businesses than trade. Delinquency rates fell across most industries, but agriculture-related industries like construction and transportation had a rough quarter. A rising number of small businesses seeking credit should help to keep performance around current levels.
