More than 11.6 million businesses in the United States are owned by women, however for some reason, financing options for women business owners seem few and far between. Even when applying for loans, women were less likely to be approved compared to men.
When it comes time for women business owners to obtain the financing they need, it’s important to fully research all the financing options that may be available. As well as understand the minimum qualification required for each type of loan.
Beyond loans, there are also grants and other resources designed to ‘level the playing field’ and help women entrepreneurs succeed.
