Gateway Credit Union for businesses
We have self-employed members in all kinds of businesses- market traders, cafe owners, hairdressers, builders, trainers, even the occasional accountant. They use Gateway for their savings in a good month, for tax or other major expenses, and we lend for tools, stock, vehicles and equipment, as well as their personal finance needs. We lend to the member on the basis of their track record and proven income.
Now we're going further with our Business Start-up loans. In partnership with Torfaen Economy and Enterprise we have launched a new start-up loan product, Up to £1500 over 2 years, to get you started in business or if you have been trading for less than 1 year. We want you to get off to a good start, so we're asking you to go to Torfaen Economy and Enterprise business support services first.
If you need more than £1500, we're working with Robert Owen Community Banking Fund to help our members and other local new entrepreneurs to access their Business Start-up Loans. You will need a business plan and some other information, and they lend up to £25,000.
If you are already trading and employ staff, why not encourage them to save direct from pay? It's a free staff benefit to help your team avoid financial stress, which is what we're all about. Give us a call to set up a meeting;- we'd be delighted to come and talk you through it.
