Where is the money for the small growing companies?

Today's headline that 75000 jobs vanished yesterday is beyond upsetting.  Where do these people go?  How will these jobs ever be replaced?  How will these people be able to move in to other industries?  How many people are too old to easily move into another industry?  I could continue but I won't.

The banks don't appear to be giving out the cash but as more fixed on how to continue to run their business as usual, pay out the bonuses (why?), make overseas investments and fix their balance sheets.  What happens to the little guys?

I am involved with a business that is growing.  This is not a business for the VC's.  This is a business for some angels and a bank.  The business is opening new doors daily with orders from solid organizations but the cash flow is tough.  You have to make a product and ship it before you get paid. 

We'd like to go to a bank, take out a short term loan or just get an extended line of credit based on orders in hand but my fear is that we will be turned down.  This is a business that is growing.  That means we can hire more people at one point and keep other places that work with us busy.  When we are seeing companies scale back and fire thousands of employees, I have to ask, how is America going to rebound.  Small companies is one way.  Although a small piece it is a piece.
