Borrowing opportunities for small business owners are reportedly becoming more available as recent reports have indicated that small business borrowing has indeed increased over the past months, which is a relief to some business owners who felt that access the capital had been constrained throughout 2010. While there are new small business lending programs set to be implemented in 2011, a simple, traditional small business loan has eluded some companies despite the fact that businesses are being asked to add more workers in order to lower high levels of unemployment.
Reports have stated that small businesses have been borrowing steadily over the past months as December was the fifth month in a row where increase in borrowing was seen from small business owners. Also, it has been said that there are more companies who are able to pay existing loans as a problem of businesses missing payments or being unable to meet their loan payment requirements is one of the many reasons that analysts feel small business lending may not have been as openly available.
While small business loans are obviously needed for many companies to grow and expand in the hopes of adding more workers and simply becoming more profitable, there are those who feel that small business loans in and of themselves will not create the environment needed for companies to begin hiring once again. A great deal of debate has gone into various factors of small businesses and how to help these companies have set themselves in a position to become more successful and contribute to the economy.
While tax credits and health insurance incentives have been offered to companies, there are some future plans which may offer more tax incentives to businesses and provide options for these companies to reinvest in themselves in the hopes of growing the economy and opening options in the job market. However, there are still small business loan opportunities available to companies who feel that they are in a position at the present time to begin this process of revamping their company or organization.
There are mixed reports that states some business owners do not feel comfortable borrowing at the present time, while there are others who have asked that more access to small business funds be made available. Yet, with indications that small business borrowing has been increasing and programs, like those from the SBA, are set to begin in the early part of 2011, it’s hoped that more businesses will begin to access the credit that they may need to become more profitable and, overall economic conditions will improve to a point where more consumers begin returning capital into these markets
