Most entrepreneurs don’t actually need huge amounts of capital to get their idea off the ground or to fund the catalyst that will take their businesses to the next level.

Whether you need to invest in a website, stock, research, marketing or equipment, a business loan of £5,000 or less could give you just the lift you need.

Many people that dream of starting their own business often never take that first step because of the fear that it will cost them a fortune to get started, when actually it could just take a small amount of start-up capital. Julie Deane, founder of bagmaker The Cambridge Satchel Company, famously began her business with just £600.
