Weiner's office released a study that revealed the rise in the amount of loans to 940 in the year 2010, 44 percent higher than the 655 in 2009. The rise in lending could be seen across the city of New York. In the Bronx, there was a 62 percent increase in the amount of lending by small businesses, and Manhattan experienced a 57 percent increase in the last year.

"Small businesses are the backbone of New York City's economy, and they have borne the brunt of our nation's recent downturn," Weiner said in the latest news for small business. "The increase in loans to small businesses is extremely encouraging, because access to credit is vital to helping these businesses get back on their feet and putting Americans back to work."

Weiner is locked in a heated battle for reelection with Republican challenger Bob Turner. Both have claimed to represent the interest of small businesses in the region.
