GLE provides financial products, helping businesses across the UK to unlock their potential and grow. GLE has been working to create jobs, grow businesses and equip SMEs with the expertise to compete since 1982. Our teams support businesses from start-up to growth, through intensive one-to-one support, training workshops and access to finance.
We launched two loan funds in 2014, dedicated to developing businesses that have had difficulty raising finance from conventional commercial sources. This includes our £ 7.2 million Regional Growth Fund (RGF) and £ 5 million London Loan Fund (LLF). The RGF provides finance to eligible established businesses located in Greater London to support their growth ambitions and create or protect jobs. Loans up to £50 000 are available from the Regional Growth Funding, provided through the CDFA. The London Loan Fund aims to lend £5 million, provided by Lloyds Bank to over 270 small and micro businesses in Greater London giving them another way to raise between £10 000 and £20 000. GLE also provides loans for Start Ups (trading less than 12 months) and you may learn more or apply at: www.glestartup.co.uk. We have on offer unsecured business loans of £500 to £70,000, competitive fixed interest rates, arrangement fees of 0% up to 2%, advice, training and mentoring for new and growing businesses and noo early repayment fees.
