A PERSHORE finance provider is digging deep to boost sustainable business growth after lending £2million to businesses last year.

During May and June businesses in the West Midlands and South West have a new opportunity to take things to the next level.

Lending £1m in May 2016 is a fresh project from Impetus Business Loans, part of the UK Responsible Finance Sector.

Impetus provides business loans and start-up loans in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.

During the last ten years more than 500 businesses have been supported and in 2015/16 more than £2million was lent.

Fund Manager, Steve Williams said: “We are a local business finance provider that’s owned by a charity and works in partnership with key organisations such as local authorities.

“Our core aim is to support business sustainability and community growth and we do this by giving business loans to a diverse range of organisations.

“If you have a start-up or expansion idea and a clear business plan then our loans, from £1,000 to £150,000 are easy to apply for.

“The approval process is straightforward and we may even be able to help if your bank is unable to.

“In May and June this year we want to help more businesses than ever before and our Lending £1m in May 2016 campaign will raise awareness of the work we do and how we help.”

During the next two months the Impetus ‘£1m in May 2016 Road-show’ will be attending a number of regional business events.

Any organisation that would like to make a loan application and/or find out more is asked to either – visit and fill in the online form, call 01386 556000 or e-mail [email protected] for more information.
