ART Business Loans was established to support access to appropriate finance for businesses and social enterprises, targeting underserved areas and communities in the West Midlands .

Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme: The British Business Bank has over 40 accredited lenders who currently offer CBILS. They include a small number of lenders such as Art Business Loans who offer their lending to social enterprises and charities as well as SMEs.

The aim is to provide accessible finance for the development and growth of sustainable enterprises that cannot obtain their full funding support from traditional sources. 

Established in 1997 ART Business Loans provides finance to both the SME sector and also the social enterprise/charity sector.

The applicant must be based in the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire or Warwickshire.

Each case is assessed individually and on its own merits.
