The Power of Women-Owned Businesses

Women are a driving force for the success of the nation’s economy. But we don’t have to tell you that. 42% of businesses in the United States are owned by women according to the National Women's Business Council. Between 2014 and 2019, the number of women-owned businesses increased 21%, while total businesses increased only 9%, showing that women are taking the economy by storm.

These female-owned businesses generate trillions of dollars per year and provide thousands of jobs in the United States. Unfortunately, even though the number of women-owned businesses has drastically increased over the last twenty years, women are still less likely to be approved for a business loan than their male counterparts. According to the Boston Consulting Group, even though women are provided significantly lower funding, they generated 10% more revenue and delivered more than twice as much revenue per dollar invested over a five-year period.

National Funding proudly supports all types of small businesses, including women-owned businesses. We offer customized loan options for businesses across many industries nationwide, and work closely with business owners to help them reach their goals. Apply today to see if you qualify for a financing solution with National Funding.
