Kent & Medway Business Fund

The Kent & Medway Business Fund (KMBF) comprises three new products to help businesses recover from the coronavirus pandemic and return to growth.  All three funds are currently closed to new pre-applications until further notice, but you can complete an expression of interest form if you'd like to be notified about future calls for applications.

There are three different schemes:

  • The Kent and Medway Business Fund (KMBF) Recovery Loan, providing 0% loans between £50,000 and £100,000 and available to help small and medium businesses recover and return to growth.  
  • Loans of the same amount will be available through the KMBF Capital Growth Loan, allowing owners to, for example, buy plant and equipment or hire new staff.
  • Thirdly, the KMBF, offers 0% loans between £101,000 and £500,000 and is open to small and medium sized businesses (SME) in Kent and Medway.  

Visit the KMBF website for more information.
