Two Entrepreneurs Benefit from Charity Loans

Two Entrepreneurs Benefit from Charity Loans

Two budding entrepreneurs from Leicestershire have been provided with the financial support to start up new businesses within the county, thanks to business loans provided by the Sir Thomas White Loan Charity.

The Charity, which provides interest-free loans of up to £15,000 to people aged over 18 and under 35, approved loans totalling £18,000 to assist with the setup of the two new businesses, following the most recent quarterly round of interviews with prospective borrowers. The two successful applicants will now be provided with a three-year period to get their businesses up and running, before commencing equal repayments over the following six years with no interest to pay.
