Funding for small businesses is often hard to come by. To help out, we have compiled some resources on this page for small business owners and entrepreneurs to look through that can make the funding process a little less stressful.  The Small Business Administration Lender Match Tool Helps small businesses identify potential lenders in their communities, and serves as a matchmaker bringing together entrepreneurs and SBA Lenders to help increase their access to capital.  The NC Rural Center works with individuals who have sound ideas for starting or expanding their business through a N.C. Microenterprise Loan Program.
