Funding Growth in the Care Sector

Home » Business Loans » Case Studies » Funding Growth in the Care Sector


Our client initially contacted us as they were struggling to secure funding from their bank, despite having an excellent track record and strong underlying profits. The business was an established co-operative housing network which was in a period of growth. They provided innovative housing solutions to those in real need, such as care leavers, vulnerable adults and others who are in need of support.

The client contacted us with a view to securing a cash injection for their business, as the cost of expansion was putting a strain on their cash flow.

The application was made more difficult as the business was set up using an unusual structure. Although it was a Ltd company, it was limited by guarantee rather than shares. This left us with very few lenders to choose from and a complex application procedure standing between us and the funds that our client needed.

The Solution

Along with obtaining the appropriate documents, accounts and taking time to fully understand the company structure, we were able to successfully fund the application through a specialist lender within the client’s desired timescales.

The funds were released, allowing the client to take their business forward, meaning more secure housing for vulnerable people.

Loan Offer

  • Loan Amount – £30,000.00
  • Rate Offered – 11.2% per annum
  • Term – 60 Months (5 years)
  • Monthly Repayment – £700.09 per month

The Adviser’s View

Whenever an application completes, it’s always satisfying. When you know that money will be used to help vulnerable people directly, it’s even more rewarding.

The prevention of homelessness is a really important issue and I’m absolutely delighted to play a role in that, however small.

The application posed a particular challenge as the company structure was relatively unusual but, in the end, we secured a positive result for the client.
