Moving in the Right Direction
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 35.8 percent of businesses are owned by women. While this number is fantastic, and woman-owned businesses are growing at a rate of 2.5x the national average, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns. When it comes to funding and revenues, the playing field is not at all level.
Many women business owners have a difficult time obtaining traditional bank financing for their companies. This likely isn’t news to you.
We know women are having a hard time getting the funding we need and deserve to operate our businesses. Let alone pay ourselves a salary.
Fortunately, there are resources, including financial assistance, available to women business owners. DirectHERy is not only here to bring you consumers, but to provide content and resources to help you navigate as you grow your business. To get started, check out some of the funding for woman-owned small businesses on Fundera.
