In May 1965, a group of installment lenders in Tennessee met with the purpose of creating an association for those companies lending money under the Tennessee Industrial Loan & Thrift Act. These individuals created the Tennessee Installment Lenders Association for the study and continuing improvement of conditions existing in the extension of credit facilities to individuals and families.
