Although the streets of America have never actually been paved with gold, the pervasive dream of “making it big” here persists among newcomers. Thousands of successful American entrepreneurs weren’t born in the U.S., and there shouldn’t be a wall between immigrant and refugee entrepreneurs and business financing.

According to Fundera, 28 percent of all “main street” businesses are owned by immigrants.

The best business finance options for immigrant entrepreneurs and investors. There is often work for such people, but there is work.
