Supportive loan finance to help people take control of their economic lives and create social benefit.

We exclusively serve the co-operative and social enterprise sector.

Over the last 40 years we’ve supported hundreds of businesses, from small community-led enterprises to large award-winning organisations. All of our funds are democratically owned and controlled by our members. We lend to those that practice the principles of co-operation, social ownership and sustainable development. Our rates are competitive and we don’t require personal guarantees.
