Does the government have any program to help me, as a veteran, get started in my own business?
The Small Business Administration (SBA) can provide a loan guaranty up to 85% of the total amount. SBA may also provide training, conferences, counseling, surety bonding, government procurement and financial management assistance. Check the local phone book for the nearest SBA office, or call 1-800-827-5722.
