As you know, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA) as well as numerous other federal laws & regulations prohibit discrimination in any aspect of a credit transaction. It applies to any extension of credit (from commercial loans to home mortgages), including extensions of credit to small businesses, corporations, partnerships, and trusts.
