Assignment Task

Apply for a start-up loan for your business

The UK government has mounted one of the most aggressive economic responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, pledging billions of pounds to support businesses and Start-Ups through the crisis. The UK government has pledged the equivalent of 8.5% of GDP towards fighting the crisis. Much of the spending is going towards supporting businesses.

In light of the above, a government-backed Start Up loan of £500 to £25,000 to start or grow businesses was introduced. Unlike a business loan, this is an unsecured personal loan. You are considering a career as an entrepreneur and you are aware of the current opportunities, hence your decision to start your own business.
