Veteran-Owned Small Business Funding Rates

Veteran-owned funding rates depend on the type of alternative small business funding you receive. Most alternative veteran-owned small business funding options use a factor rate instead of a traditional interest rate. Factor rates are simple decimal figures that show how much “extra” you will owe on the original amount of the loan and are determined based on your risk assessment.
