What is Capital?

Capital is essential for almost all businesses; it is the lifeblood of small businesses. Most entrepreneurs cannot start a new business or grow their existing companies without adequate financing through micro loans, commercial lending, or investment capital. Truly, access to capital is so critical for small businesses to thrive.

Early-stage companies occasionally need capital assistance to stay afloat and finance their day-to-day operations. Despite this, many small businesses and startups find it difficult to get access to capital.

For some businesses, the capital necessary for operating come from bank loans, Small Business Association loans, or even personal credit cards. Even though there are plenty of alternative ways to access capital.
