For businesses struggling to access any of the previously announced support schemes, this micro-loan may be very useful. However, it remains to be seen how successful banks will be at making the scheme work following the problems that many businesses have experienced accessing the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme.

If you wish to apply you can do so using the following link on Monday 4 May:
