The Epic Business Loan Battle: SMEs fighting for finance
"Accessing business finance is a battle which defeats large numbers of those SMEs willing to take up position on the front line. The SME Finance Monitori recorded a dramatic shift in SME attitudes to borrowing, with just one in three willing to borrow money to grow the firm. However, the changing banking landscape has allowed new allies to step in, clearing enemy strongholds along the way and empowering businesses."
Respondents to our survey represented a cross section of the UK SME market.
Over 500 individuals from across the spectrum of SME size and turnover were involved, giving a clear picture of the realities faced every day by young and growing firms.
