Lending to Small and Medium Sized Firms in Hampshire
We have already been creating jobs in Hampshire through our lending to SMEs from our Green Growth Loans Programme (GGL), backed by Eastleigh Borough Council and the Government. The GGL is a revolving loan fund. For our next stage – the Community Bank – Hampshire city councils, borough councils, universities, Local First CIC and HCB Foundation (a charitable entity) have provided the capital.
One of a Kind
Your money stays in the community: 50% of the returns go to HCB Foundation, a charity for the benefit of the people in Hampshire.
