October is National Women’s Small Business Month!
Here are some interesting facts, courtesy of the U.S. Small Business Administration :
“In 1972, there were a little over 400,000 women-owned businesses in the United States. Until 1988, women needed a male relative to co-sign if they wanted to apply for a business loan. That same year, the Women’s Business Ownership Act increased SBA’s access to capital to provide financial assistance to organizations geared toward women-owned small businesses. By 2019, women-owned businesses represented 42% of all U.S. businesses and generated $1.9 trillion worth of revenue. Today, there are over 13 million women-owned businesses and counting. This month, SBA honors the milestone achievements of today’s women-owned businesses.”
As a local, female-owned, small business, we pride ourselves on offering our patients customized, professional, and ethical care. We just want to say THANK YOU for the support you have shown us over the past 11+ years!
