All About Business Loans for Women

Special business loans for women are offered by the United States government and other organizations. Access to funding is essential for women business owners to start or expand their company.

Support is offered through the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), the Association of Women's Business Centers and other organizations geared towards businesswomen. NAWBO has connected with financial institutions such as Wells Fargo and American Express to provide business loans for women and other helpful financial services.

The Official NAWBO/Wells Fargo Women's Business Services Program offers access to a variety of women's business loans, lines of credit, and custom checking and saving options.

NAWBO is also connected to the federal Small Business Administration's (SBA) via the Office of Women's Business Ownership Entrepreneurial Development program. The program oversees a network of Women's Business Centers located all over the country that assist economically or socially disadvantaged women with starting, running or expanding their businesses.
