Small business is almost always looking for capital and often finding it very difficult to obtain. Traditional loans through banks are often not available because banks operate on a rigid system of risk assessment. Small business is just too "risky" because of a lack of successful longevity, credit scoring, and equity position. The answer is stand alone micro-loan programs that rely on other factors like community impact and "character" equity. There are many examples of these types of programs that have put hundreds of thousands of dollars into the hands of deserving entrepreneurs.
