While there is no doubt that over half of all jobs in the United States economy are created by small businesses, finding funding from traditional lenders to expand a company is a challenge.
Banks, financial institutions and even the Small Business Association have complicated applications and focus on the net worth of the business as well as guarantees by the business owner or owners. For startups and small businesses, this can make being approved for these types of funding options an uphill battle with limited chance of success.
These same institutions are just not set up to actually help the small business. They don’t offer the organizational and structural services that are compatible with small businesses, and they certainly don’t provide the right accounts receivable software.
The FDIC (Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation) reports the percentage of loans to commercial business and industries with a balance of less than $250,000 has declined from 20% of total dollars borrowed in 2004 to 13% in the second quarter of 2014.
In addition, a recent study reports that 75% of all small businesses seeking funding through traditional sources need to borrow less than $50,000, something that traditional lenders are not designed to handle. To make matters even more concerning, the 2014 Wells Fargo-Gallup Small Business Index reported only 32% of small business owners reported that obtaining credit was easy, at least through traditional lending institutions.
