What is social enterprise lending?

Social enterprise lending generally refers to loans used by voluntary organisations, charities, community businesses and not-for-profits. Backers are usually investors with interests in social projects, environmentally sound projects and other similar set ups.

The Community Development Finance Association is an example of a social enterprise funding solution, and offers loans of as little as £50, right up to grants of £1 million.
