Originally I was a farmer, but after Foot and Mouth affected us we had to diversify and Folk2Folk have enabled me to do this.
Initially I borrowed money through Parnalls Solicitors in 2011 to raise money for my parent’s new bungalow. Banks weren’t lending to anyone so this was a good option. Since then I have borrowed money through Folk2Folk and think I am probably one of their most active borrowers and certainly one of the first. I have used the money to do up my own home, make improvements to my land, buy a digger and renovate a large barn which now houses a business providing accommodation for autistic adults. There are fifty full time members of staff, ten of whom stay overnight. Social Services love our barn and we are now planning on working with them to do up another barn for adults with higher needs who need a safe environment.
How FOLK2FOLK helped me
I like the fact that Folk2Folk guarantee the money and as a borrower I get instant access to the funds. They know me now so I get a quick decision. I have a good relationship with the staff who are all very professional. They understand what I am trying to do and are very supportive. I would definitely recommend Folk2Folk as borrowers gain access to money quickly and lenders are happy as they get a high rate of interest.
