Starting a Business in Maryland: Grants, Steps to Start Business in MD

Nice to know about this forum, this really helps people like me who want to start their own business. I am from MD and presently working in Gulf as Engineer. I have got 600 sq/ft commercial store in MD, and 30k to invest.

Can you suggest some business ideas for following requirements?

1) I need 6K per month (3K for home loan + 3k for family expenses), from business to run the monthly expenses, after all deductions and monthly expenses in business.

2) I need a growth in the business for every 5 years so that after each 5 years span, my profit shall be added to 40% of the previous slab.
3) I do not want to spend full time for the business. I would prefer to keep some manager to manage the business, whenever I am away from my country.
4) I do not want to work on Sundays and holidays due to family time.

My ideas are as follows

  • Trading Business of Consumer Goods (Home Decor, Construction Material, Furniture) either From China Or Other Countries In ASIA.
  • Small Hotel Or Restaurant
  • Tourist Transport Business

I am women and I am looking for some govt or private bank loans to start a business.

Can you tell me where can I get grants for starting a business in MA, USA?

I am looking for some positive feedback from you. Thanks and warm regards
