Small Business Loans for Women

The number of American businesses owned by women has been slightly increasing over the past couple of decades, with women making up 29% of business owners compared to 26% in 1997.2 But even as the number of female entrepreneurs increases, obtaining business loans for women can be a challenge, as only 16% of conventional small business loans granted each year go to women.3

These numbers may suggest that there is a unique set of challenges for female business owners to access business loans, but it’s important for women who own businesses to know that understanding your financing options and preparing for the application process can help increase your chances of approval.

Grants and Loans for Women-Owned Business

There're serveral business funding options for women other than loans issued by banks. Female business owners often turn to business grants and alternative business loans. Here's a short-list of women-owned business funding options.

  • Government Grants. These are great options for women business owners seeking extra fundings. However, the application process could be complex because you must meet some strict application and compliance guidelines to be eligible. And you may need to wait for months to get approval.
  • Term Loans. Also known as installment business loans, term loans typically offer a larger amount than lines of credit to small business owners. You pay it back over a fixed amount of time.
  • Business Lines of Credit. A flexible type of business loan that allows you to draw money from a revolving credit line. A line of credit is like a business credit card — you use it as you need it. However, with a Headway Capital line of credit, you can choose to make weekly or monthly payments and borrow more as your principal is paid down.
