In 2022, we began a pilot initiative, alongside Robert Owen Community Bank, and Purple Shoots, in Wales to see if an interest-free loan can meaningfully improve an applicant’s financial position by the end of the loan term.

We are operating the scheme on a not-for-profit basis with a focus on providing affordable credit to people across the UK who are traditionally locked out from accessing it.
