As the economy continues its slow climb out of recession, businesses located in rural areas of Lancashire can access growth finance through Lancashire County Council's Rural Lancashire Development Fund.

Available to new and existing limited companies, finance deals range from £2000 to £10000 by way of unsecured loans with a reduction on repayments of up to 50% based on the achievement of agreed business targets.
