The FSE Group provides loan finance to ambitious social sector organisations looking to expand their impact.
We look to support expansion strategies which will deliver a “step-change” in an organisations scale of impact and financial resilience. Whilst by no means prescriptive, this might include:
Investment in staff, marketing or other overheads in connection with capacity building and activity that will deliver identified revenue growth.
- Development of new products or services (based on identified demand or commissioning).
- Expansion of existing products or services (geographic roll-out, social franchising etc).
- “Deposit support” for a strategic asset purchase (e.g. where bank finance results in a finance gap which would place undue strain on unrestricted cash reserves).
- Short-term bridging support pending a specific and clearly defined repayment event (such as an identified inward investment or cash-receipt or potentially by exception, fund-raising event).
