Our aim is to build a Women's Loan Fund to enable us to provide loans and support women with a viable business idea who cannot access funds from banks and other conventional lenders. We believe in a hand up, not a hand out.

The Women's Loan Fund will lend small amounts of money to women, who then repay it in order that others can then receive help from the fund. We see this as a sustainable solution to the lack of affordable start up finance available, specifically to women.

“I honestly don’t know what I’d have done without Freddies. They believed in me when everyone else thought I was worthless.”
— Pia - The Vanilla Pod Bakery

Why focus on women?

  • Women are at least 14 times more likely to live in poverty and less likely to qualify for full time paid employment.
  • Social impact of lending to women is far greater.


Whilst open to all women with a business idea we will focus on:

  • Single parent families.
  • Migrant communities and ethnic minorities.
  • Women with disabilities.
  • NEETs (young people not in education, employment or training)

If you would like to support our Crowdfunder Appeal and help more women start their own businesses and change their lives and their families lives for the better, please donate what you can and share our appeal with others.
