Small businesses have a more difficult time obtaining credit than their larger counterparts

In general, small businesses have a more difficult time obtaining credit than their larger counterparts. One reason is that default rates are higher in the small business loan market, especially given the fact that small businesses fail at a higher rate than larger businesses. Another reason is that it is often more difficult for lenders to evaluate small business loan applications, since there is often not a lot of publicly-available information on their businesses. In addition, small business financial statements are not always very detailed, and, in many cases, owners often mix their business finances with their personal finances.
