We offer small business loans if you want to start a business or have a business but are looking for some extra funding.

If you are looking for a small loan for other things (not a business loan) click HERE to go through to our partner Conduit who may be able to help.

Conduit’s mission is to transform lives, raise aspirations and remove barriers to social, economic and financial inclusion. One of their key values is to make people matter by releasing their potential and encouraging self-worth. Conduit have been a charity for more than 30 years operating initially in the North East of England, but now with national coverage, and have similar charitable objectives to Purple Shoots

We have chosen to partner with their FCA regulated personal lending arm Conduit because we believe they are the best in the market and we can rely on their underlying values of fairness and ethical practice. You can apply for a loan online or speak to one of their friendly team over the phone.
