SBA Backs Loans to Florida Small Business Exporters

As we become a more “globalized [1]” world, international trade [2] is becoming more popular and more important, especially in the small business world [3]. E-commerce and logistics have allowed Florida small businesses to more easily reach the 96% of consumers who reside outside of the U.S.

By creating a business [4] in Florida and exporting [2]goods and services to other countries, you are receiving the benefits of owning a business in Florida, while still being able to reach a vast arena of consumers. This allows for increased sales and profit opportunities.

South Florida, in particular, is a major hub for international trade [2] activity. Image courtesy of Stockfreeimages.com [5]

The U.S. Small Business Association (SBA) had loaned over $213 million in the Miami-Dade area alone in the 2012 fiscal year (FY2012). SBA loans in South Florida have increased 25% since the FY2010.

“Loans have been guaranteed for as little as $5,000 all the way up to the new loan limit of $5 million,” SBA Deputy District Director Jonel Hein said.

In addition to facilitating loans, SBA offers counseling and training, export matchmaking conferences, and other information to help small businesses [3].

Small business increasing their exports [2]helps to create jobs and stimulate the economy of the local community. Creating a business in Florida will benefit you, your employees, and the Florida community.

If you are considering opening a business in Florida, Boyer Law Firm [6]can help you.
