LOS ANGELES, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York Times reports that small businesses are finding it easier to get the funding they need to grow their businesses and lender Advantage Capital Business Loans has noticed the trend as well. "It's actually a really great time to access small-business capital," says Keri Gohman, executive vice president and Capital One's head of small-business banking. "Rates are low and banks are also feeling the economic recovery".
However, many analysts suggest it's a bit too early for optimism. After all, even though small business loan approval at large banks reached 20%, up 9% from a year ago this past June, data from Biz2Credit shows that lending is still significantly down from pre-recession levels. This suggests that the climate at these large, traditional institutions still favors lending to large, multi-national corporations with little perceived risk over loans to smaller firms.
It's a precarious time for small business professionals looking to reach new financial goals for their companies, so it's understandable if they feel a certain level of anxiety upon applying for lending.
