The Small Business Administration was created to help small businesses become successful through financial assistance and loans, and through expert advice and workshops to help develop small businesses in all areas-photography, painting, interior design, consulting, entertainment, embroidery, food and restaurants, greeting cards and gifts, appliance repair, hair and nail salon, real estate, and catering, to name a few.

Because small businesses are such an important part of the economy, the Small Business Administration helps however it can to help these companies succeed.
