Predatory Lending

Share This Topic

When used responsibly, credit can be a blessing. Scripture upholds principles of just and honest commerce, while prohibiting usury, exploitation and oppression of those in need. This includes predatory lending in which vulnerable people with immediate financial needs are lured into short-term, high interest loan agreements that are rolled over from paycheck to paycheck. We engage in the Faith for Just Lending coalition as part of our advocacy work in this area.
