Private Loans to Small Business

Reports & Graphics

Definition

The dollar amount of small business loans (defined as private business loans of $1 million or less) made, per person in the labor force, 2010.

Description

In order to survive and prosper, small businesses need access to capital from lending institutions. The greater the volume of small business lending, the better supported small businesses are. Small businesses drive the economy: they employ more than half the private sector workforce and serve as an engine for job creation. Business ownership is second only to homeownership as a source of wealth for Americans.
