Many sole proprietors had been effectively excluded from the PPP, especially those with very little or negative net profit.  Businesses that file Schedule C have higher concentrations of ownership by members of underserved groups.  An analysis by the SBA Office of Advocacy of Census data found that firms with no employees are 70% owned by women and minorities, compared to 40% for businesses with employees.
