Women Receive Fewer Small Business Loans

July 23, 2014, 11:14 AM by Anna Peters

Women Receive Fewer Small Business Loans
NEW YORK, NY -

Women who own small business are still far behind their male counterparts when it comes to getting loans and government contracts.

That's the finding of a congressional report by Democratic staffers of the Senate Small Business & Entrepreneurship Committee. The report says that while businesses owned by women account for 30 percent of small companies, they receive only 4.4 percent of the total dollars in conventional small-business loans.

And while Congress in 1994 set a governmentwide goal of awarding five percent of federal contract dollars to small businesses owned by women, it hasn't met that goal. The closest it has come is four percent, in the fiscal year that ended September 30, 2012.

The small business committee plans a hearing Wednesday on ways to address the challenges facing women owners.
