Access to finance is critical for SMEs and business decision-makers. The barriers to accessing finance can stunt business growth and create excessive emotional and financial strain.

SMEs and entrepreneurs have traditionally used family finance to fund their businesses, or relied on credit cards to get started or see themselves through periods of tighter cash flow. Businesses at a more advanced stage typically turn to overdrafts or lines of credit to cover short-term cash flow challenges or accelerate business development.

Fortunately, a raft of new financing options is emerging, empowering both large and small businesses to grow.
