Ever since the federal government codified its landmark CARES Act, authorizing $2 trillion of assistance to companies and individuals during the coronavirus pandemic, small-business owners have been scrambling to apply. Many are in dire, immediate need of the SBA loans apportioned as part of the Act's new Paycheck Protection Program. But as we have detailed in a series of related articles, there is finite stimulus to go around, and the process can be more prohibitive for some than others.

We wanted to know how this has all been bearing out for our readers, as many of you are directly impacted by the economic chaos COVID-19 has sown. So we asked you all directly on our social media channels. From what we can gather, the experience has been stressful and successful in equal measure.
