The article reports on the positive alterations brought by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to Small Business Administration (SBA) lending programs in the U.S. Totaling 730 million U.S. dollars in new expenditures, the changes made by the SBA are creating it easier for small businesses to lend money. For 2009, the SBA has reserved over 28 billion U.S. dollars for its various lending programs, and there is plenty for passing toy retail businesses.
