Did you know that the United States government can help you seek financial assistance for your small business? Yes, the government does that, and it has been successfully doing so since 1953.

Perhaps if you're looking for a way to help your business grow, now would be a good time to understand how the government can help you with your small business needs.

In order to obtain a thorough comprehension of the process, let me first introduce you to the government's leading agency that is responsible for assisting the nation's small businesses, the United States Small Business Administration.

The United States Small Business Administration, otherwise known as SBA, is a United States government agency that was established on the 30th day of July, 1953.
