Funding

Background

Because of the banking crisis, access to funds for working capital, expansion or new projects from the banks is difficult. Bank lending to the private sector in Ireland has been contracting over the past year and this is reflected in the experience of companies in County Louth.

 

Action Plan

The objective of the Indigenous Action Plan is to ensure that Louth enterprises get fair access to additional credit lines for the SME sector and to develop a range of funding sources to meet the needs of innovative enterprise in Louth. In addition, the Louth Economic Forum has established direct links with a range of funding sources in the interests of understanding the criteria of these funders and facilitating access to them by entrepreneurs wishing to invest in Louth.
