Launch of Business Loans Scotland

Business Loans Scotland is a consortium of Scotland’s 32 local authorities, incorporated as a company limited by guarantee to provide loan finance up to £100,000 to new and growing, small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) across Scotland. 

Business Loans Scotland builds on the previous successful loan funds, the West of Scotland Loan Fund (WSLF), the East of Scotland Investment Fund (ESIF) and the South of Scotland Loan Scheme.

How it works

Business Loans Scotland offers gap funding up to a maximum of £100k to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) within our geographic area of operation where public sector funding (including Business Loans Scotland’s contribution), would not exceed 50% of the total funding package.
