Resources abound for business funding in Tucson

According to the US Census Bureau there are more than 60,000 “nonemployer establishments” — companies with no employees — in Pima County.

This is a great place to start a small business, but if your start-up requires significant financial investment upfront, finding funding can be a challenge as banks won’t take the risk without a proven track record or established business credit.

Finance Companies Account for a Decreasing Share of Small Business Credit

Bank lending to small businesses has been on a long term decline, with number of loans of less than $1 million – a common proxy for small business lending – falling from 51 percent of the number of commercial and industrial loans in 1998 to 25 percent in 2014, data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation reveals.

Some observers have suggested that finance companies – non-bank entities that raise money by issuing commercial paper and bonds rather than by taking deposits – have been substituting for banks as a source of small business credit. However, Federal Reserve data show that finance companies have been accounting for a shrinking share of small business...

MSMEs should get easier finance from banking system: Joshi

Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises should get easier finance from the formal banking system, senior BJP leader Murali Manohar Joshi said today.

Small and medium scale industries are doing 70 per cent production of the country. If they do not remain in good health, the countrys economy wont remain in good health. But the economy is doing very little for this sector.

He further said that there is a need for affordable, accessible and available finance for the sector from the banking sector.

Business, Finance Leaders Address US Water Policy

From markets and higher prices, better water systems will flow, they say.

Three years ago the US Environmental Protection Agency asked a big question: What is the value of water to the American economy?

After two years of meetings and multiple studies, the results were conclusive in the all the wrong ways.

Water was clearly valuable – energy production, drinking water supply, and agriculture account for 94 percent of US water withdrawals – but the numbers necessary for the sort of detailed evaluations that policy wonks crave were not widely available. Data on water use were absent or incomplete. Even economic signals were off. Prices paid by residents and farmers,...
