Posted by: John Tozzi on November 24, 2009

The SBA’s $375 million in stimulus money to cut fees and boost loan guarantees is dry, reports Catherine Clifford of CNNMoney.

Obama seeks $100 million to extend it, according to Silla Brush in The Hill.

Artists — many of them small business owners or freelancers — have seen incomes fall severely, Daniel Costello writes at NPR’s Planet Money.

Among microbusinesses, delinquencies are down and borrowing is picking up (though still down from a year ago), reports James Kelleher at Reuters.
