September’s Lending Impact and Borrower Stories

In this month’s post, find out how your lending has helped businesses across the UK achieve their goals. See borrower Jim in a BBC documentary next week, watch investor Jan meet up with a kitesurfing business she lent to, and read our ideas for an amazing Oktoberfest.

A great month for
Jim, Managing Director at Channel Group, who’ll feature on Saving Lives at Sea on Tuesday next week.

We caught up with Jim last month to find out how Funding Circle investors, like you, have helped grow his outdoor activity business.

Watch our new video as Jan, a Funding Circle investor, heads to Worthing to meet Christine and have her first kite surfing lesson! Find out how your lending helped Christine pursue her dreams and set up The Kite, Surf & Sup Co.
