Help for Rural Small Business Owners

August 26, 2019
According to SCORE's latest infographic small business owners in rural America have revenue comparable to their urban counterparts but face increased challenges accessing capital. To help fill this gap, the SBA partners with community banks to provide guaranteed loans to help rural businesses start, grow, expand and recover. There are over 400 SBA-approved lenders in Minnesota.  Find one today through Lender Match!

And, through the end of September, reduced fees on loans made in designated rural and HUBZone areas. Here are the details.

SCORE is a resource partner of the SBA and receives federal funding to help you succeed. It stands ready to help small business owners get the help they need, no matter what zip code they live in.  Learn more at
