Since 2004, we’ve been lending money to small businesses that need access to finance to thrive and grow. In the beginning, our social mission was to support businesses in Bradford, particularly set in deprived communities. 14 years later we’ve grown considerably, covering the wider region of Yorkshire and Humberside, the North East, and the North West but our core aims haven’t changed.
As a social enterprise, our goal is simple; to provide flexible finance to businesses in areas that need it most. We’re proud to be part of the effort to support and grow the regional economies that make up the North of England and have developed a unique lending proposition for this to continue.
