A key constraint for small businesses is the dearth of operating capital. The situation is especially critical for niche market agricultural enterprises. This project identified barriers in access to capital for niche marketers.
What information did this project offer niche agricultural producers about future capital access?
Niche producers should be aware that multiple potential sources of capital are available to fund operations; identifying these potential sources of capital may take time and effort; obtaining capital requires targeting the appropriate provider of capital.
