Small business loans to help you thrive

Small business loans provide a simple, low-cost way to borrow for your business. You can borrow for asset purchase, a specific project or simply for working capital, and you’ll get fixed monthly repayments so you can plan with confidence.

With rates from 1.9% per year, a small business loan can be much more affordable than a business overdraft or credit card. You can also borrow unsecured without putting down property or assets as a security, and there’s no fee if you want to pay off your loan early in one go.

How do you qualify for a small business loan?

Qualifying for a small business loan depends on your situation and we take a number of factors into account. Unfortunately, you won’t qualify for a Funding Circle loan if you have been trading for less than two years.
