I loved using the GRID to support a local business. I offered to lend a certain amount to Happy Threads and was even able to specify the interest rate I wanted to charge. The original amount plus the interest rate was repaid to me through the platform every month. It couldn’t have been easier and I felt happy to be contributing to a local business.

We needed to boost awareness of our products and our brand but we didn’t have the budget for a marketing campaign. As I needed a relatively small amount, I didn’t want to look for a loan from the bank. Having spoken with the team at GRID Finance, I realised peertopeer financing was more cost effective than using my company overdraft or credit card. The project was live on the platform for 28 days, and we raised the full €2000 within that time.

I lent money to a couple of businesses on the GRID. It was simple and straightforward. It was great to see the repayments come through each month. It was clear what I was supporting and how the money could help the business.
