Starting a business can be difficult, but there are small business loans and grants available to aid qualified applicants. You may qualify for grants, especially if you belong to certain groups such as female small business owners or immigrant small business owners. Certain types of industry may have special priority also. Small business loans tend to be available in larger amounts than personal loans and tend to be a more popular option than grants due to allowing more freedom within the actual use of the funds.
