Jenny asks…

Where are the best sources to get funding for business start up? Thank you?

I am looking to create my own job but I need funding to do it. All information is appreciated!
Thank you for all the answers so far.

I forgot to mention: I am also seeking alternative methods besides the bank.

My meaning: Are there organizations that help folk from 0. Are there organizations that help folk with no capital? who are they and how can you find them?

More important: how does one make an application?

Thank you again :)

admin answers:

Any reputable lender will require a business plan that shows that you can pay the loan back. Go to or for instructions on how to write a business plan and sample business plans. You will personally have to put up 30% of the funds. No bank is going to assume all of the risk.

Maria asks…

I am a disabled American seeking funding to purchase an existing business. What sources are available to me?

I am not afraid to work the business or “get my feet wet”. I am just having trouble finding “sources for the disabled”. Please assist me in finding them if you are able. I will thoroughly read and study every answer that is sent. Thank you for your valuable time, effort, and energy!

I’m also a disabled American. Contact me and I will share what little knowledge I have.
