Study Says Black Women Have a Better Chance of Getting Loans

A new University of Iowa study suggests African-American women’s odds of receiving a loan is comparable to the odds of white men. The research showed that lenders view Black women as more hardworking and trustworthy because of the assumption that they “are on their own raising a family.” Black men ranked lowest in obtaining loans and white women followed. (Photo: REUTERS/Andrew Burton)
