Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and for far too long, credit has been difficult to access. To foster healthy growth, small business owners NEED access to credit, not just for day-to-day operations, but also for the opportunity to expand, innovate, and increase employment opportunities.
Hardworking Americans and their families are also being impacted by government regulations that are hindering their access to credit which, at times, can be critical to making ends meet.
