As a community venture, you can make a big positive impact. With our strong heritage of supporting community-based businesses, we’re doing more to help.
Security may be required. Product fees may apply. Over 18s only. Subject to status, business use only. Any property or asset used as security may be repossessed or forfeited if you do not keep up repayments on any debt secured on it.
Maybe you need funding to get off the ground. Perhaps you need the networks or supply chains to grow and evolve. We’re there to support you at every stage of the journey, from starting up to expanding your impact on the world.
