There's a misconception that only reputable businesses with years of financial history can get finance. This is not the case, new companies can also get loans.

The fact that SEFA doesn't do online applications shouldn’t worry you, they have over 9 offices countrywide for you to apply at.

At the end of the day, they're more interested in supporting small enterprises. Their credit agreement is not only reasonable but affordable too and all you need to do is make an application to see if you qualify.
