Supporting social businesses in Wales with social investment loan finance
Communities Investment Fund (CIF) is a long running fund that
has supported dozens of social businesses in Wales to grow through
the provision of millions of pounds of social investment loan
Previously an EU funded project, CIF is now in its third
iteration and continues to make loans via the funds repaid from the
investments made as part of the initial EU funded CIF project.
So if you are a social business based in Wales and you want to
expand, grow your income generating capabilities or purchase an
asset then a CIF loan might be able to help you.
Our aim is to lend where others will not; as such,our risk
appetite and pricing reflects that approach.
CIF loans are available from £50,000 to £250,000 with a guide
interest rate of around 7%.
