Responsible Finance_The Business Enterprise Fund is a social enterprise that lends money to SME businesses in Yorkshire & the North East. These businesses are usually unable to get finance from the banks. As a social enterprise, we have no share holders – all profits generated are reinvested into our loan fund, to support growth in the economy through business and job creation.

We think it is important to fill the funding gap for those who are unable to draw on the usual sources of finance, and are here to guide you through the process, whether you are a start up business or need the resources to take your company to the next level.
