How you can help us

  • Setting up a lending business is the same as starting any other business in many aspects – particularly in the thorough planning and research required.
  • You can help us to assist you by thinking about the following:
  • Putting together a comprehensive business plan – this should include revenue, overheads, loan interest details, etc.
  • Consider your capital – some lending businesses are backed entirely by one investor but you may want to involve others
