NAB microenterprise loan

NAB microenterprise loan

Starting and running your own small business is one of life’s most exciting and rewarding experiences. But accessing affordable business credit can often be daunting, with few if any avenues available to those on low incomes.

NAB’s Microenterprise Program has been set up to support small businesses that have difficulty accessing mainstream finance. This is part of NAB’s belief that all Australians should have access to banking.

Since 2007, NAB has been providing unsecured business loans of between for people on low incomes. The program works in partnership with a variety of organisations that provide training and small business advice to loan recipients.

Program partners mentor and help the applicants develop their business plan and provide them with business skills training and advice during the first year of business.
