Federal Agency Opens Hot Line On Small-Business Financing

I am pleased to inform my readers here about the twist in business financing in Connecticut. Well, how would you react to the opening for financing hot line? Read more about this news below courtesy of Courant.Com!

Small-business owners with questions about finance or other business operations can now call a small-business financing hot line launched this week by the U.S. Small Business Administration's Connecticut district office.

The Hartford-based hot line is intended to give the state's small-business owners a single phone number for help with business-related questions, said Bernard Sweeney, district director of the SBA for Connecticut.

"While I haven't heard of any banks that have pushed people away," Sweeney said, "we want to be able to tell people what kind of financing is out there and where they can go for it."

The hot line number is 860-240-4654, and it is available Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Messages left during that time will be returned the same day.

Well, I have nothing against this noble move of Hartford financing hot line but I am just wondering how broad or specific the questions that the hot line can answer and who are the credible people behind this hot line that small business owners can be given credible answers as well.
