Government stimulus COVID-19 business loans are not helping everyone, yet the coronavirus pandemic is affecting small businesses in a myriad of ways. From reduced sales and remote work to the temporary closings of “non-essential” businesses, things are changing fast during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Businesses both large and small are being forced to adapt, but for most, a COVID-19 business loan remains out of reach. With little capital and sources of funding, some small businesses and independent contractors may have to get more resourceful and creative with their financing to weather this pandemic and come out the other end intact.
Hope for Relief in the Form of Small Business Administration (SBA) Loans Has Been Dashed by Some Small Businesses
According to the Washington Post on April 27th, thousands of small businesses have already lined up for the latest round of $310 billion in COVID-19 business loans, but the money could run out in days.
Worse yet, these newly available economic stimulus funds may not end up in the hands of small businesses as intended. As witnessed in the first wave of SBA funding, COVID-19 business loans and relief funds provided via the Cares Act’s Paycheck Protection Program will be cornered by industry insiders and large businesses that already have access to cash. The Washington Post reports that “At least 140 publicly held companies received funds from the first Paycheck Protection Program, including large restaurant chains, a Fortune 500 auto retailer and a pharmaceutical company with $14 million in cash.”
Where does this leave small business owners in need of a COVID-19 business loan?
