The Scottish Borders Business Loan Fund

The fund is now open for 2014-15 applications. 

Why was the fund created?

The SBBLF aims to respond to barriers of access to finance by providing small businesses with financial assistance both to develop projects that would not otherwise happen and to meet requirements of the normal business cycle.  

How much could I apply for?

The SBBLF offers the chance to apply for loans between £1,000 and £20,000 over terms of up to three years. We operate in conjunction with other commercial lending agencies and applicants should demonstrate that at least 25% of the total project cost is being provided from sources outside of the public sector.
