Reply To: I was in the process of buying a cafe when the Covid 19 struck. I wanted to turn it into a day cafe cum evening wine & dessert bar, something that my town does not currently have. However, it is becoming hard for me to secure a bank loan because I do not know if a bank would give me an unsecured business loan at this time. is the government providing any support for a new business to be set up that would be able to contribute to employing people and help stimulate the town’s economy in its own small way? 

My immediate advice is what do you have to lose by asking? I’m not sure what the banks’ position would be but in these times, I’m sure they would be happy to give you advice and perhaps useful referrals. Cheers
