Small businesses play an important role in our communities. They are the local mom and pop clothing store you’ve been shopping at since you were a kid, they are the coffee shop where you meet your friends, and they are the gift shop where you got that local art that is the centerpiece of your living room. Small businesses are, well, awesome. But, they do struggle, and no matter how often you shop small, it may not be enough to help your favorite small business grow. They really need financial support to survive or evolve, but for small businesses that can be extremely difficult.
What are these difficulties and is there a way to not just shop small, but invest small? We chatted Ken Martin, Co-founder of Honeycomb Credit to find out.
