There are government grants for women that may be able to be used to help those who are approved to start a small business or improve an existing one. Each grant has its own stipulations which govern how grant money is spent. So, if you need funds, be sure to seek out grants that can be spent on the things that you need. Women are welcome to apply for other grants for small business purposes that are not only made available for women. However, there may be less competition within the women only grants programs.
