Even though small businesses around the US create two thirds of the jobs in the country, getting capital is almost always reported as one of the top three constraints to growth.
Can you believe it? We can. We see people trying to start farm businesses all the time struggle to get start up funding. Often this delays their business plans by months, years, or even makes it altogether impossible for them to build a farm.
But if only a third of those small businesses could grow - if they could just hire one additional employee - the US could be at full employment. One of the main obstacles is getting funding. And yet every day eight thousand business loan applications are rejected by banks.
So what do we do?
New funding programs offer a solution
It's time for this obstacle to be removed.
Luckily, we've got a good start on a solution. Unique funding programs are popping up all over the place, from specialized crowdfunding platforms, to peer-to-peer loan programs like Kiva Zip.
Kiva Zip is a unique peer-powered loan system that uses the practicality of modern technology coupled with the power of relationships. After a small business is accepted into the system, they are introduced to an online community of over fifty two thousand people who can lend anywhere from five dollars to the whole amount of your loan.
Once you have the money, you have up to thirty six months to repay the loan.
And voila! Just like that, your farm has been given the leg-up it needs to get started.
