4. Attraction of bank credit. However, getting it is not easy. The bank needs a money-back guarantee, and, as a rule, it will prefer to satisfy the request of already verified clients.
To open a small business, you can borrow a certain amount from the state. To do this, you will need to register at the employment center as an unemployed person and submit a ready business plan to this institution. If the document is approved, the money will be donated.
