Paragon Financial announced that women-owned businesses are the fastest growing portion of its portfolio. The company said that the National Women’s Business Council 2012 Annual Report suggests the next big economic push will be led by women-owned businesses (WOBs):
In addition, a recent national survey by Web.com Group and the National Association of Women Business Owners found a pervasive sense of economic optimism and a prediction by 85% of WOB that more women will become entrepreneurs in 2013 than in years past. In a positive sign for the economy, they also plan to invest more (38%) or the same (54%) in hiring this year than they did in 2012.
However, women still face significant challenges in business, including:
The issues become more pronounced when looking for financing, and many women do everything they can to avoid trying to get credit. In the past year, 78% of the surveyed WOBs did not seek a new or extended line of credit. More than half of them indicated they did not want to take on additional credit while 32% did not think they could get credit if they tried.
That’s not the case at Paragon Financial. WOBs are the fastest-growing portion of our business portfolio.
