( | Press Release | 2016-12-16 21:28:56 )
Sweet importers and retailers, Candy Hero Ltd. first borrowed through the Leeds-based peer-to-peer lending platform in 2014, when they borrowed £50,000 from 231 lenders at an interest rate of 18%. They returned earlier this year to borrow £300,000 and have already secured offers that amount to over £204,000. An impressive 45 lenders are reinvesting in Candy Hero; and 267 new lenders have joined them.

Frank Dillon, one of the founders and co-owners of Candy Hero Ltd., was keen to put his faith back in when the need arose for further funding. He commented that he would rather make the repayments, on which lenders can earn 20% interest, to numerous individuals, than to one faceless institution; embodying the idea behind the ethos.

Candy Hero Ltd. has just acquired a major customer, with a committed annual spend of £2.2 million. With the money they raise with this loan, the company, whose head office is based out of Baildon, Yorkshire, plans to refinance part of their previous loan, and use additional capital to add to their stock cycle.

Frank and his team have confidence in crowdfunding. Frank commented that, during Candy Hero Ltd.’s first experience of peer-to-peer funding, rebuildingsociety “provided a smooth process prior to listing the application, support throughout, and a platform that is clear and easy-to-use. is a very impressive social business that is a powerful tool when you need extra finance above and beyond what may have been already possible.”
