Products-in-a-Box Toolkits

CBA's Products-in-a-Box (PIAB) program supports nonprofits in choosing and offering small dollar consumer loans and other credit building products that meet the needs of specific populations in their community. As part of PIAB, CBA partners with practitioners and researchers to create toolkits of best practices, guidance, and resources for providing small dollar consumer loans.  Some of the information in the toolkit can be generalized across small dollar consumer loans of all type, and in some sections, we provide guidance and considerations for a specific population and use. We urge readers to use whatever components of the toolkit seem relevant for their context, and to contact CBA with suggestions for improvement or ideas for new toolkits at
