Small Business Borrowers’ Bill of Rights: What You Need to Know

I The term “Loan” and related terms used here such as “Lending” are intended to be interpreted in the broadest sense possible so as to include loans, lines of credit, merchant cash advances, and similar products offered and provided to U.S. small businesses, whether or not such credit products are characterized legally or otherwise as loans. The terms “Lender” and “Borrower” are intended to be interpreted in the broadest sense possible so as to include, in the case of lenders, credit marketplaces that facilitate loans on behalf of lenders, cash advance providers, and all manner of persons providing loans to U.S. small businesses or evaluating the creditworthiness of such small businesses in connection with providing a loan, and, in the case of borrowers, all U.S. small businesses who seek or obtain a loan. Ii APR is the annual rate that is charged for borrowing, expressed as a single percentage number.

9 Trends That Explain Why Small Businesses Are Thriving Now More Than Ever

After surveying more than 1,000 of its small business customers from all 50 states, Guidant Financial found that “Dissatisfaction with Corporate America” ranked as the main reason why respondents pursued business ownership in 2016.

While there are plenty of entrepreneurs and small business owners willing to take the leap in starting their own business from the ground-up, there’s also more options than ever to purchase an existing business or franchise. Ever since Eric Ries released his book The Lean Startup, more and more small businesses have taken his advice in testing business ideas before investing in them and using easy-to-execute strategies in order to make more informed, less costly decisions. Guidant actually found that 18 percent of small businesses are spending between $50,000 to $100,000 when starting a new business.
