Who we are…

Fredericks is a Responsible Finance Provider that provides loans to people who want to set up a new business or maintain or expand an existing business. Fredericks is open to anyone who has a viable business proposition, but cannot obtain mainstream finance. Fredericks operates across England and Wales with a support team on hand to help and guide applicants all the way through the process. The support continues even after the applicant has been successful in the form of mentoring, practical business advice, networking and links within the local community that can help support and grow new and expanding businesses.

Our Mission

Fredericks Foundation's mission is to provide access to small business loans to people excluded from mainstream credit in order to create choice not charity, and to give individuals the opportunity to transform their lives, and to build a society based on dignity not on handouts.

Our Aim

To alleviate poverty by providing microfinance to enable people to achieve the dignity and self respect of supporting themselves through enterprise;  To work with partners and volunteers to promote and support self employment and reinforce local communities through business.
