Funding Resources for Women in Business

And let’s not forget funding! If you are looking for financial backing or grant money, check out these resources that offer a variety of financial options for women in business.

  • SBA loans are technically loans guaranteed by the government. That means lenders face less risk lending to you, and you qualify for better loan options than you would otherwise. SBA loans are great financing options for those who can qualify, you’ll get low-rate and long-term financing.
  • Eileen Fisher Women-Owned Business Grant Program. This small business grant program seeks to fund 100% women-owned businesses that are dedicated to social consciousness, sustainability, and innovation, with a minimum grant of $12,500.

  • Union Bank has a diversity lending program that helps women, minorities, and veterans get better access to small business credit.
