What qualifies as a Minority Business?

Many minority business loans and grants are dependent upon specific qualifications or thorough business plans. With National funding, this isn’t an issue. As an alternative lender, we’re happy to look out for underserved small businesses and support them as they grow. From racial minorities to small business loans for women, when it comes to special qualifications or applications, you are already set.

How Small Business Loans for Minorities Work for You

Like all entrepreneurs, minority business owners must contend with a constantly fluctuating market and day-to-day financial obligations. Between purchasing new inventory, expanding staff and moving into different premises – running a business takes money, and oftentimes, that means it requires borrowing. Fortunately, owners seeking a path to business development through minority business loans can turn to National Funding. We want every business owner to have the chance to flourish.

What Are the Options for Minority Business Owners?

There are a variety of options when it comes to minority business loans, each with advantages and disadvantages. Certain SBA loans are built for minority businesses and aim to help underserved communities. The main difference between those and loans from National Funding is qualification requirements. The government often tries to avoid risk and prefers to lend to those with high credit scores. At National Funding, we help minority business owners who may have trouble gaining the funding they need elsewhere. We don’t mind a little risk and are happy to help businesses, even those with lower credit scores. Our small business loans for minorities are here to serve you!
