View Full Version : just a little bit of cash!

20-03-2005, 12:13 PM
I'm at the 'start up' stage of beginning a business and require some funding to purchase my stock.
The thing is - since my student days, my credit is cr** and the bank will probably laugh at me if i approach them for a loan.
All i require is about 1,000 which is 500 stock and 500 for a new / recon PC cos the one i'm currently using is an ancient one from my Uni days (5-6yrs ago!).
Family are as skint as I am, and dunno where else to go!
I'm 26, female, and wondered if anyone knows of any organisations that help women, or ethnic minorities etc - you know - like a niche in the market type of thing.
Any ideas people ? ...
(apart from the Princes Trust)

The availability of funding differs from region to region, and from project to project.

If you register online with Shell LiveWIRE at http://www.shell-livewire.org/cgi-bin/register.pl (this is different to registering for the Discussion Forum), you will be able to access a great deal of relevant information within the Be Your Own Boss section, including articles on Finance and Funding. You will find the Sources of Business Funding of particular interest as it contains lots of links to relevant organisations that offer financial assistance:
