  • New Research Broadens Understandings of Microbusiness Financial Vulnerability

    in Entrepreneur

    Though microbusinesses contribute significantly to nationwide economic activity and their owners’ household balance sheets, many still struggle to make ends meet or build long-term wealth. Today, little is known about how the typical microbusiness manages its finances, the major financial challenges they face or which components of financial capability lead them to business success. To begin to bridge this gap in understanding, CFED released a groundbreaking new study titled In Search of Solid Ground: Understanding the Financial Vulnerabilities of Microbusiness Owners.


    With support from MasterCard’s Center for Inclusive Growth, CFED launched the study in 2013, surveying 716 microbusiness owners from 43 states and conducting phone interviews with 214 owners from two target markets: Miami and Minneapolis. The findings reveal that microbusiness owners’ business and personal finances are often inextricably tied, and that they are dealing with significant financial vulnerabilities that reach far beyond access to credit.

    The study’s findings help tell a more nuanced story about what constitutes financial capability and offer new insights into the types of solutions that might resolve microbusinesses’ greatest financial challenges. Going forward, CFED will engage partners in a national dialogue focused on moving from research to action. We hope you will accept CFED’s invitation to stay engaged!
