Small businesses that received government-issued COVID-19 loans are now grappling with their next challenge: applying for loan forgiveness. If the loans were used the way they were intended, the process isn’t too complicated. However, if business owners used a Paycheck Protection Program loan for something other than paying employees, for instance, it could get a little dicey.

We chatted with Ami Kassar of MultiFunding Business Loan Advisors on the latest episode of the “Winning on Main Street” podcast to learn which loans are still available and how to navigate through the loan forgiveness process. He also reveals details on new loans that are coming soon, such as the Main Street Lending Program.
