Does your small business need a funding boost?


Does your small business need a funding boost? The Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Business Loan Fund supports viable businesses with loans of £10,000 to £50,000. It’s delivered by regional lender BCRS Business Loans in partnership with Staffordshire County Council and Stoke-on-Trent City Council. A Burton-based online retailer of needlework, sewing and craft supplies is one of the latest to benefit, securing a £30,000 loan. Elizabeth Rocca secured finance through the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Business Loan Fund to support growth following an increase in demand for craft products following the pandemic. The company, which was established by managing director Sarah Gardiner-Harvey as a lifestyle business in 2017, has experienced impressive growth in recent years and employs two full time staff and one part-time member of staff. Sarah Gardiner-Harvey said: “We are delighted to have secured £30,000 from the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Business Loan Fund to purchase additional stock and enhance our website. “We applied directly on BCRS Business Loans’ website after finding that we didn’t tick all of the boxes at other lenders. “This funding boost will help Elizabeth Rocca take the next step on its growth journey and we are very thankful to BCRS for their support and in particular Andrew who was helpful from start to finish.” READ MORE HERE FIND OUT MORE AND APPLY
