How Funding Circle helps U.S. small businesses grow
Funding Circle’s mission is simple: To build a better financial world. But what does that really mean?
For starters, it means helping businesses get access to fast, affordable, and transparent loans. This makes a real difference for businesses looking to grow and expand. But the impact doesn’t stop there.
Small businesses are the engine of our economy. They create the majority of net new jobs in America, employ half of all working adults, and help their local communities thrive. When they can’t get financing to keep their businesses moving forward, this economic engine grinds to a halt.
Funding Circle has helped thousands of U.S. businesses access more than $1 billion in financing. In a recent survey*, 92% of these business owners said they would come back to Funding Circle for their future business financing needs. 53% said they were able to increase their profits as a result of their loan. Altogether, Funding Circle loans have supported the creation of more than 10,000 new jobs across the United States.
We’re pretty proud of those numbers. We’re also proud of each of the businesses we’ve helped grow. Meet a few:
