Reports have it that in America alone, small businesses are currently employing the largest workforce. Truly, they are creating the largest job opportunities around the globe. Every economy depends largely on small businesses. Given the right incentives in terms of capital, these businesses can greatly turn around the economy.
SBA (Small Business Administration) is currently in the news for a good course as it is providing loans to small businesses. Through its online marketplace, SBA is helping borrowers to access capital from major lending institutions across all the 50 states. Some lenders who have come on board include Kabbage, Biz2Credit, and On Deck Capital. These and several others are currently lending through the online market platform.
The latest from the outfit of SBA is the giving of incentives that are geared towards licensing of new companies focused on investing in small businesses. This is seen as supporting the Obama initiative of Start-up America. This is one way of involving the private sector to invest in small businesses for profits.
This incentive applies to only companies that have failed in achieving any meaningful cash flow over the years. The SBA loan is therefore seen as a way of winning confidence from key lending institutions. This offers a cushion to individual business people who the banks feel are high-risk borrowers and need some form of guarantee.
