Women in Business Tip: How to Find Loan Programs in Your State
Meeting with financial advisor

Most small business owners know that banks aren’t the only source of small business financing for women-owned businesses. However, finding other financing sources for female business owners isn’t always easy. Sometimes the loans are created by local public-private partnerships; other times, business funding can come from grants set aside for women-owned businesses. The best place to start is by researching the funding opportunities in your state. The SBA’s Women Business Centers across the country can offer direction to help you find capital, as well as comprehensive training for starting and growing your business. Next, peruse grant databases like the one by  WomenOwned.com, which list thousands grants and assistance programs dedicated to funding women- and minority-owned small businesses. There are even individual grant programs, like the one started by entrepreneur Eileen Fisher, that gives grants to innovative and growing women-owned businesses.
