The impact of COVID-19 on routes to funding for SMEs

It’s a worrying time for SMEs running short of money during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only will they be hit hard by a significant drop in customer revenue, traditional funders are also holding back, fearing an uncertain future.

This lack of cash means reinvesting profits for organic growth is impossible, and simply paying the bills has become a challenge.
