Staffordshire Business Loan Fund
We are working with the Black Country Reinvestment Society (BCRS) to offer loans of £10,000 to £50,000 to small businesses. Over 70 small businesses have already benefitted. Businesses must be based in Staffordshire, employ less than 50 people and have been turned down by the conventional banks. The loans are repayable over a four year period.
This loan fund can support you if you are a business start-up or an established business. Find out more by visiting www.bcrs.org.uk or by calling 0845 3138410.
