Back about 12 years ago I started a mail order business. Being a person of limited financial means and resources at the time, I needed help.
I was told to try using the government services provided by the Small Business Administration. I was pleased with all the help I received. If it had not been for their help with a loan and the many other services they provided, I would never have been able to make it a success. I was able to pay off the loan promptly. I was very pleased with all the help and knowledge I gained from the Small Business Administration.
I only got out of the business, when I became sick several years ago, The business was a success and provided extra income for my family for quite a few years until it ended.
I have always believed that a job worth doing is worth doing right. When starting a business, it is good to get all the information and resources you can to make it a success. The SBA does that and much more.
The link to the SBA is http://www.sba.gov/index.html.
I recommend their services and loans to anyone who needs some help starting or maintaining their small business. The services they offer can be adjusted to meet the needs of any small business owner.
