It is comforting to know that the federal government wants to see that small businesses can flourish. One of the ways that they do this is through the Small Business Association (SBA) and the SBA loans that it provides.
The SBA: Help for Small Businesses
Founded in 1953, the SBA provides loans and well business counseling, and contracting expertise to small businesses of all shapes and sizes. SBA loans come with low-interest rates, making them a great option for entrepreneurs just starting. Get an SBA loan through a participating lender. The SBA guarantees the loan, which greatly reduces the risk to the lender. As a result, they can be easier to obtain than other types of loans.
