Donate: Make a Donation

As a social enterprise and a charity, we rely on the generosity of our donors. They give us the funding pot we need to help entrepreneurs who can’t access finance via traditional lenders. Plus they help with our running costs, so we can support our borrowers and set up Self-Reliant Groups.

The impact is plain to see. Since we started out in 2013, we’ve been able to lend over £1.6M – helping over 600 new businesses to start trading, and more than 100 others to take the next step in their journey.

All this has created jobs…fed supply chains…lifted communities…so far, adding over £16M to the Welsh economy.

However, there’s much more to do…

Right now, we can’t say YES to everyone who deserves our help. At most, we can lend to 100 businesses in a year. But demand is rising – more and more people are looking to build their own future, while lenders tighten their purse strings.

So we urgently need to ramp up our support, by bringing in more donations.


Every penny donated is put to good use. For example:

£1000 will cover a basic loan for a start-up entrepreneur – or a top-up for a growing business that needs a new cash injection.

£3000 will cover a full business loan, to fund bigger costs like vehicles or specialist equipment.

£5000 will help us start and facilitate two SRGs and take them through to independence over the next 12 months

Generous one-time donations like these make an immediate difference. But to keep things ticking over, we need regular contributions too. A small monthly donation between £10 and £500 goes a long way in helping us continue our vital work.
