Microloans are majorly designed for small businesses. However, they come with some restrictions and limitations that can sometimes hinder small businesses from getting them. In 2009, the SBA started a microloan program under President Barack Obama's administration with the purpose of enabling small businesses to get loans between $500 and $50,000. The program has provided tens of thousands of loans to different small business owners to start a new business or expand an existing one.
