Small business loans The Finance Authority of Maine's (FAME) small business programs have guaranteed nearly $300,000 worth of loans during January and February, pro- viding needed financial assistance to four Maine small business firms. The FAME guarantee on the loans amounted to $224, 000. The guaranteed loans include finan- cing for a guest cottage business, a mach- ine company, a grocery store and a ser- vice station. In order to apply for FAME small business assistance, a firm must show it would be unable to obtain the necessary funds from a conventional lender without the FAME guarantee. Small businesses play such a vital role in the Maine economy that it is import- ant FAME be able to assist those that would be unable to start or expand with: out its participation. Even though the firms are unable to secure conventional loans without this guarantee, the history of the small business programs has shown that few of the firms that have been as- sisted have failed. FAME's assistance be- comes critical in allowing these firms to grow and continue to contribute to the Maine economy and employment iness program to guarantee up to 85% of a $100,000 loan, and the veterans prog- ram to guarantee up to 80% of a $100, 000 loan. Prior to FAME, the maximum loan the program could guarantee was $30, 000. The increased loan size in the pro- grams has significantly increased the val- ue of the programs to sin.all businesses. However, almost all the applications are for loans of $50,000 or more. It is planned to start promoting small loans of less than $50,000 that will assist "micro" business start or expand. These businesses also are an important segment of the economy and too frequently are neglected by lenders. Proposed legislation this session will improve the program by increasing the amount of small business assistance avail- able and by making consistent the guar- antee percentage of the two programs. g VERNON M.
