FAQ Frequently asked questions on favored industries

What are favored industries?

Favored Industries are more desired and sought after by other businesses trying to establish relationships and provide goods and services to them.
They are usually favored because their industry types are more stable, established and consistently profitable than other industries. They also have a lower out of business percentage compared to other industries.

Am I less likely to get approved for a business loan if my business is not considered a favored industry?

Will we get more money by being in an industry lenders want to loan to?
