Ways for Small Businesses to Survive this Pandemic
Small businesses all over the country are suffering as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to escalate. To date, many small businesses are already experiencing a huge decline in revenues, are forced to limit their operations, and have had to unfortunately lay off employees. With no definite end in sight, many are even considering to temporarily stop operations to prevent further losses.
Solutions for Tomorrow
According to a survey conducted by Goldman Sachs (a multinational investment bank and financial services company based in New York City), 96% of their respondents claim that their businesses have already been impacted by the outbreak. The survey also indicated that 51% will only be able to operate for zero to three months under current conditions.
To combat the economic effects of the Coronavirus pandemic and save small to medium-size businesses from this bleak predicament, the U.S. Small Business Administration now offers disaster relief loans for small business owners in various states and territories, including Georgia.
Through the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program, the SBA will provide targeted, low-interest loans of up to $2 million to eligible small businesses and private non-profits whose operations have been severely impacted by the Coronavirus, leading to a temporary loss of revenue. These loans may be used to cover payroll and pay debts, accounts payables, and other bills.
In an effort to keep payments affordable, the SBA offers low interest rates (3.75% for small businesses and 2.75% for non-profits) and long term repayments (maximum of 30 years), subject to individual borrower’s ability to pay.
