Need Cash? Try These 5 Recommended Sources of Cash for Small Businesses
One of the biggest problems faced by small business owners is finding cash to start or expand their business. Grants are great sources of money that does not have to be repaid, but they are often not easy to find. And banks are often tough to deal with. Fortunately, other alternative sources are available.

Alternative sources

Purch, a Utah-based company that publishes online information about tech-related products and services for both consumers and businesses, recently recommended several sources of funding available to small businesses. The information was published recently on their company web site called Business News Daily. They researched and recommended these 5 best sources for cash.
