Many entrepreneurs crumble under adversity. You don't. So small business loans for handicapped entrepreneurs may be comparatively easy for you to handle.
Even so, it just shouldn't be so hard for handicapped entrepreneurs to get business loans, or even investment financing from venture capital and angel investors.
Notice to Handicapped Entrepreneurs Looking for Small Business Loans and Investment: Make everyone else meet you on your terms -- then everyone can win.
I lived in California for several decades, and I naively believed
that the ADA meant something, and that government was doing
something right for those with disabilities.
Then I saw other states and other cities. I saw lawyers laugh at the ADA; I saw major cities with pavement entirely too rough for a wheel chair and new buildings with no access.
One thing I did not see were wheelchairs of any kind. It's as though whole cities stuffed all their handicapped citizens into closets.
We live in the age of Stephen Hawking and Christopher Reeves -- this shouldn't be happening.
As a country, we have so, so far to go.
It's no wonder that so many people with disabilities opt to form their own companies. Business loans for handicapped have become a genuine specialty. By necessity, many of these companies are small entrepreneurial ventures. If this is the case for your business, take a look at SBA Micro Loans in particular. The SBA in general is an excellent source for small business loans -- it is one of the very few sources that doesn't discriminate, and business loans for handicapped entrepreneurs are welcome there.
If your business is larger, with stronger financial needs, then the sky is limit.
But when you have taken care of these formalities, then hit 'em hard.
Present a business plan worthy of your company.
Present your company just like you would present any other company. Tell them you are handicapped, or don't. It doesn't matter.
I REPEAT: IT DOESN'T MATTER.
I kind of lean toward letting it slip AFTER you have their attention and their interest. If they balk, so be it. Look elsewhere, and count yourself lucky that you haven't wasted any more time or money on narrow minded *!%^@s.
Let me know how you do.

You probably got more "hits" than you can handle!
