Who you’ll be lending to

Through FOLK2FOLK you’ll be helping to support entrepreneurial businesses from farmers, property renovators, developers, country hotels and pubs, right through to manufacturing businesses, yoga studios and cafés. You’ll be providing the finance to start or grow businesses, buy assets or boost working capital.

We’re choosy but fair and turn down Borrowers who don’t meet our criteria. Our credit assessment process includes undertaking credit reference checks, due diligence, checking asset ownership and often holding a personal meeting prior to loan approval.

It’s important, however, that you do your own due diligence and don’t rely solely on FOLK2FOLK’s review when deciding to invest into a loan on the FOLK2FOLK platform.
