LE141 Fundamentals of Micro and Small Business Underwriting
This course is designed to give all lending practitioners a strong foundation in the underwriting of micro and small businesses, whether they have little or no experience or would like a refresher. Participants will learn and employ the analysis techniques of finance professionals—the five Cs of credit. Participants will analyze financial statements and other types of financial information using a variety of commonly used financial ratios and will discuss both the benefits and limitations of these methods. Participants will learn how to structure loans to mitigate different types of risks. This course will be highly interactive, allowing participants to relate their own lending experiences to the case studies and other examples that will be used in class. Emphasis will be placed on working in groups so participants can be exposed to the analysis techniques and lending philosophy of others in the private nonprofit sector.
