A non-traditional bank that lends money to individual who cannot obtain loans spurned by mainstream banks. Established in 1910, Fidelity Savings & Trust Co. was the first Morris Plan bank with $20,000 in capital. There were 109 Morris Plan banks in 1931. However, the number sank after the economy recouped from the Great Depression and commercial banks started offering small loans. Today, there are more than 100 Morris plan banks all over the United States with an average loss on loans at less than 0.1%.
