UPDATE: Small business owners have a new $100,000 loan option

New changes in a federal loan program make it easier for small business owners to qualify for financial help during the coronavirus pandemic. The Main Street Lending Program was created by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March to provide loans to small and medium-sized businesses that were in sound financial shape before the pandemic. Recently, the minimum loan size was lowered to better support small businesses.
