Financial Inclusion Investees Accepted Onto Fair4All Finance Scale-Up Programme

Credit providers Fair For You, Moneyline and Five Lamps who are tackling financial inclusion, have all been selected for the Fair4All Finance Scale-Up Programme.

We’re proud to announce that our investees Fair For You, Moneyline and Five Lamps who are credit providers focused on financial inclusion, have all been selected for the Fair4All Finance Scale-Up Programme.

These three organisations, among five in total admitted to the programme, have been recognised for their demonstration of potential for scale, sustainable business models to serve those who are the most vulnerable throughout England and provision of best business practices to benefit the wider sector.

The pilot scale up programme saw 55 competitive submissions which is only a testament to the growth of a sustainable affordable credits market within the UK. The work is not yet done. As we continue to focus on investing in companies who not only tackle financial inclusion, but provide an example to the rest of the affordable credit sector, we look forward seeing our investees grow from strength to strength while we provide them with the tools they need to do so.

If you’d like more information on the credit providers we’ve invested in please read about them below:

Moneyline

Moneyline is a credit provider who offers telephone and local branch loans up to £1500 which can be repaid between 3-8 months for first time customers. Their loans are based on what you can afford at the time of the loan and in the future, not what has happened with your credit history in the past.
