Women in Small Business

Small businesses are a major part of the American economy, and women appear to run them better. Small businesses fuel job growth, generate taxes and make up a large percentage of American businesses overall. Women own nearly 12 million American businesses. They also start their businesses about five times faster than the average American small business.  Many banks haven’t quite caught up with the times. They still rely on old funding approval methods. Here are some of the reasons why banks and other sources still turn down business women who seek funding.

“Risky” Endeavors

Women are more likely than men to go into people/service focused businesses. These include things like restaurants, lodging, and tourism. Banks see these businesses as high-risk endeavors. Wanting to avoid as much risk as possible, they avoid fund ing to these businesses.

Lower Credit Scores

Historically, the credit system hasn’t favored women. That’s why women’s credit scores tend to fall about 20 points below their male counterparts’ credit scores these days. Some banks require near-perfect credit scores for their funding, which ultimately hurts women in business.

At First Down Funding, we don’t believe in discriminatory practices. We think it’s time to level the playing field. That’s why we have a program that focuses on small business funding for women. If you worry about getting a funding elsewhere, we want to make life easier for you.
