Small Business Administration loans or financing

I have a friend who is starting up a photography business. He is incredibly talented but needs to find financing for his business. Any ideas?

  • oddly, it is hard to get money from the sba for a start up.
    self financing is hard now too.
    is he looking for his own studio?
    could he set up a studio in his home?
    could he do off site photography?
    can any family or friends loan him money?

  • Can he get a HELOC?

  • Tell him he should shop around at all the local banks for a small business loan. He can try the SBA, but the interest rates are obsurdly high.
