My second article for The Financial Post is here, which means I also have to run out and get a copy of the paper for a clipping. This one is about micro-financing for start ups.
When you’re a new business owner and have no money to get started, or any collateral, or a solid credit history, the big banks won’t give you a chance. This is where micro-loans come in. These are small loans offered to new entrepreneurs who would otherwise have no way of financing their businesses. Entrepreneurship is the way of the future and these small loan programs are making that an accessible dream for everyone. You don’t need to be filthy rich to go into business for yourself anymore.
