Where Can Mothers Get Small Business Loans

Jan 7, 2008
Mothers are more likely to work in part-time jobs and often interrupt their careers to take care of family members. As their children grow and the needs and desires change totally with the family realm, mom herself also desires change.

It is important for female entrepreneurs to have access to the capital they need to compete in the highly competitive business market. Many lenders have set aside loans specifically targeted for female entrepreneurs.

These loans consist of regular commercial lending, loans from the Small Business Administration, and Equity investments. Loans for women are more popular than ever before. Due to their many experiences they are creative and willing to try new ideas inside and outside of the home.

Lenders will base their businesses credit worthiness on their business credit scores, so it is important to get lines of credit or loans from lenders that report their scores to the Small Business Financial Exchange.

While there are some businesses that can be started with modest funds, most home-based businesses require, a small amount of working capital. There are many ways that you can finance your home-based business.

You need to take some time to plan out what you intend to spend on your new venture. It is a good idea to map out these expenses ahead of time to ensure that you don't get in over your head.

Next you need to create a business plan, figure out the amount of start-up capital and to plan for your future financial needs. Once you have done all of this, you will have a better idea of the type of funding you will need and what to ask for.

Now, where should you tell your mom to start looking for the loan? Commercial loans are attractive because they do not require entrepreneurs to turn over equity or company control. But paying off debt can be difficult if you are not making a profit.

You may not have access to bank loans if you have no relevant experience or collateral. If you are looking for $100,000 or less, you can get an unsecured loan based on your personal credit history. You can also obtain a secured loan against personal assets you might have.

A question was asked about sending your mother to get a small business loan online. This type of transaction should be done with the utmost caution and with extreme research. Online lenders are not necessarily the best choice.

A good place to begin with is the Small Business Administration website: www.sba.gov and their telephone is 1-800-827-5722.
