Start Up Loans

Entrepreneurs aged over 18 with less than 24 months trading experience can access financial support and business mentoring through Start Up Loans.

Start Up Loans is a government funded initiative that provides loans and business mentoring to new micro and small businesses across the UK.

The average loan size is £5,500 with a fixed rate of six per cent the loan is repaid over one to five years. The loan is a personal loan given for business purposes.

The NMTF recognises that the biggest barrier for new market and street traders, events retailers and mobile caterers is access to affordable finance.
