PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (May 6, 2013) Access to capital is still the biggest concern and impediment to growth in 2013 for the U.S. small business community, according to a recent poll of small business owners conducted by Direct Capital.
The survey, which was sent to more than 7,000 small businesses nationwide, revealed that a majority of small business owners are still struggling for financial stability. Lackluster bank lending, cuts to federal financing and slow growth in the post-recession economy have contributed to the challenges.
The survey also found that small businesses were concerned with implementing the new healthcare law and increased taxes, both of which could lead to increased costs for small businesses.
Direct Capital, a leading nationwide provider of equipment leasing, business loans and working capital, is working to fill that void by delivering more than $500 million in lending to main street businesses in 2013.
