National Black Business Month 2020 | SmartBiz Loans

A recent poll by the National Black Chamber of Commerce states that 80% of Black entrepreneurs say they faced more challenges launching their business because of their race.

For many, those challenges continue into business ownership and have been amplified by the tension of recent events. SmartBiz encourages you to show your support by shopping at local, Black-owned businesses starting this month!
