Charity Alters Terms to Make Borrowing Easier

Charity Alters Terms to Make Borrowing Easier

The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity, based at Friars Mill (pictured) in Leicester, has adjusted a number of its terms and conditions so as to make it easier for applicants to obtain one of the Charity’s interest-free business and education loans – in some cases approving selected applicants unable to meet the guarantor requirements in full.

In addition, applicants may borrow an improved sum in order to support business start-up or development, or post-graduate study.

One of the county’s oldest charities, named after one of Leicester’s most generous benefactors, Sir Thomas White – who features on the city’s iconic clock tower, The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity provides loans to people aged between 18 and 35 to establish new businesses within Leicestershire and Rutland, in addition to smaller sums to support the cost of continuing studies for a post-graduate qualification.

Business loan applicants may now borrow up to £20,000 to assist with either a start-up project or to take a developing business to the next level. This move is a £5,000 increase on the total sum a business loan applicant could previously apply for.

Alongside this, the Charity has increased the total sum an education borrower may take out as an interest-free loan, with the new £10,000 figure a £4,000 increase on the previous maximum of £6,000.

The culinary entrepreneur used to play hockey at county level – before he had the misfortune of breaking his leg doing so. This meant he had to take six-months out from work, giving him plenty of spare time to fill. Some people might have done nothing but sit at home and curse their bad luck. Not Dildar.
