Where Do Women Go To Find Business Grants Or Loans

Jan 9, 2008
If you are a woman business owner then you know that there are many things for you to focus on, especially how to find money for your business so it can grow and thrive. Did you know that some funding sources out there specifically target women entrepreneurs?

If you are looking for a grant, don't be hesitant to look because of what the business is going to be. There are literally hundreds of grants for women wanting to start craft businesses, consulting, brokerage, record labels and more.

Here are several sites that hopefully will prove helpful and lead you to what you are looking for.

One site that is worth checking out is The Ladies Club 2000. It is required that you sign up and become a member. It's free of charge and then you will have access to grant information. www.theladiesclub2000.com/grantsforwomen.htm

On Women's Finance, there are two different kinds of grants offered. There is the new business grant that is between $100 and $5,500 and one for existing business that ranges from $1,000 to $5,000. You must apply. www.womensbusinessgrants.com

It seems at times that our government does not want us to succeed, but it does. Most places have requirements in order to get a grant such as being over 65, a minority, or even having bad credit. The site listed has additional sites that are looking for women to give grants to in these areas. www.womenowned.com/Growing/Funding/Opportunities.aspx

Here is a new fundraising organization that raises money from women for women. Loans are given from $500 to $10,000 (for first time recipients the maximum amount is $5,000). It is called Count-Me-In and looks like a great resource with funding consideration based on experience over credit history. www.count-me-in.org

The Women's Funding Network promotes the development and growth of women's funds then empowers women by fostering strategic alliances among women donors and institutions. www.wfnet.org

www.WomensNet.Online.net - This one offers helpful resources from grants for women business owners to detailed practical help with marketing, advertising, accounting and thousand other details serving women entrepreneurs.

The Ada Project for Women (TAP) includes information on discussion groups, fellowships, grants and notable women in computer science. www.tap.mills.edu

The sites listed here are worth checking out to help you find small business grants, loans or fellowships. Don't get discouraged, as this is time consuming and will lead you away from your dream. Remember, above is just a start and they can lead to other sites or points of promise. Good luck, you deserve it as much as anyone else!
