LOANS SIMILIAR TO THE US SMALL BUSINESS ASSOCIATION (SBA) PROGRAM IN THE UK
For those unfamiliar, in the United States, there is a loan programme backed by the government that can be used to acquire a business. It is quite an attractive product, the main downside is it requires a personal guarantee.
Is anyone in the UK familiar with a similar product? I know there are the British Growth Fund and other UK government-backed institutions and programmes. But these programmes do not seem to allow for purchasing a business.
