Business Grants for Women

 by: Rebecca Game

Many women in business find that in order to meet their business' financial needs, they turn to searching out a loan source. Business loans for women are widely available through the Small Business Administration and a variety of other sources such as banks, credit unions and other financial institutions.

These programs fall into 21 different categories, as defined by the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance.
