Loans for Women Business Owners

Women business owners form a class of their own in the field of business. Are you among these strong, independent and enterprising women? And are you looking for a source of loan to buy inventory, equipment, and fixtures to start a business?

Or perhaps you need additional working capital to invest on a fledging business?


When people hear of the word loan, most associate it with loans from banks. If you are a woman trying to put up or develop a business and are looking for money to buy inventory, equipment, fixtures and working capital, a bank loan is indeed an option. What you need to prepare foremost is a strong business plan and collateral to back the loan up.

Non-bank Source of Loan for Women Entrepreneurs

But there are other options aside from banks. Women entrepreneurs are recognized as a special class of entrepreneurs in the world of business. They face special challenges compared to men business owners. While men have always dominated the business scene, entrepreneurship for women is considered a still growing field. Many factors played a role on why women entrepreneurship is late to grow, among them the need for women to prioritize their family and children over having a career or business of their own. Because of these special considerations, many agencies have put up support systems for women business owners. Among these support is the grant of loan to women who are starting or developing a business.

The most basic agency to go to for women entrepreneurs is the government’s Small Business Administration. Their Web site has plenty of resources that could be of help to many enterprising women. Another helpful avenue for women looking for business funding is her state office. There exists in many states, agencies and organizations that aim to help women business owners start or develop a business. For example, in California, there is the Women’s Economic Ventures Small Business Loan Fund. In Illinois, there is the Women and Minority Business Assistance. The Internet is a nifty place to look for these agencies. If you are looking for one and found some in the Net, you can either make inquiries in the Net or go or call the office itself for an in-depth explanation of their program.

Loan Information for Women Business Owners

Also, trust on the power of a support system from other women business owner -- ask women entrepreneurs from around your area about information on business funding for women. You can join local and national women business owner organizations like the National Women Business Owners Corporation to meet up with other women business owners. There are a lot of independent and non-profit organizations that are willing to help women become successful in business. Usually, funding agencies link up with these organizations. Becoming a member therefore could bridge you to these agencies. Virtually, you can join discussion groups and forums. The Internet is a useful tool to find a group, an agency or organization that could help you in your business venture.
