WASHINGTON, DC (WKZO) -- It appears banks are starting to loosen up when it comes to lending money for small businesses.  The U.S. Department of Treasury says Michigan-based lenders taking part in the Small Business Lending Fund increased the amount loaned by more than 277-million dollars in the first quarter of this year compared to baseline levels.  Nationwide, the increase was nine-billion dollars over those levels since the depth of the recession.
