Big Financial Leaps For Small Enterprises

Forbes 2011 financial report came out with some very interesting news and surprising unheard of companies that really rocked the financial world. Many huge conglomerate companies that we all expect to really be on top of the financial reports were actually reporting slow lending, losses and basically overall poor results. Even with some of the poor and unexpected reports there was some interesting news that surfaced.

The Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas is considering bringing his micro-lending business to the United States where he will focus on lending to women. Salinas stated "Because 85 percent of women owned businesses can be considered micro enterprises that a well managed micro financing program would be a great asset. Personal Loans Pro is yet another surprise that hit reports primarily due to its diversity of providing nationwide assistance to people that have bad credit but their Online Personal Loans program is also designed to provide people with the best interest rates found nationwide. Providing nationwide services and instant online application processing definitely provides convenience and outstanding results.

Brunei Darussalam’s banks weather oil price volatility

Banks in Brunei Darussalam have so far weathered the impact of falling oil prices, winning plaudits from credit rating agencies for their resilience and stability.

Former Lehigh County jail doctor gets 3 1/2 years in prison for cheating taxpayers

Von Kiel will receive credit for the 14 months he has spent in prison since his arrest. Prosecutors opposed his release on bail, citing evidence he planned to flee to Central America or Ecuador and testimony from a cellmate who said Von Kiel spoke about assassinating a judge who ordered him to repay his medical school loans.

Von Kiel, who was identified as Erik Dennis Fluck Von Kiel in court filings, did not speak during the brief sentencing hearing Monday. Defense attorney Michael Engle said Von Kiel has no assets with which to pay restitution and his medical license will likely be the subject of an inquiry by Pennsylvania regulators.
