Minister Arias-Vasquez invites new round of applications for the Gibraltar Enterprise Scheme - the Government backed soft-loan scheme

The Minister for Health, Care and Business, Gemma Arias-Vasquez, is pleased to invite a new round of applications to the Gibraltar Enterprise Scheme, a government-backed soft loan initiative designed to support local start-ups and small businesses. The Gibraltar Enterprise Scheme aims to assist the growth and development of the small business sector, a vital component of Gibraltar’s economy. 

Key Details of the Scheme: 

  • Eligibility: Start-ups and small businesses operating for less than three years and having at least one Gibraltar resident owner or shareholder.
  • Loan Security: Loans are backed by His Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar and business owners.
  • Loan Amount: £10,000 - £25,000
  • Application Closing Date: 12 July 2024.

Minister Arias-Vasquez highlighted the importance of the scheme and said: “Our Government is keen to support businesses, including start-up businesses. One of the main obstacles that many start-up businesses face involves obtaining financing. We feel there is untapped potential and lots of good ideas that the Gibraltarian entrepreneur has; we want to facilitate their journey into business. The scheme will not only assist start-ups but also existing businesses operating for less than three years who want to grow. This initiative has been well-received, with a positive response from the business community and support from key financial institutions. I am extremely grateful to Trusted Novus Bank and Gibraltar International Bank for participating in this scheme and look forward to opening further rounds in the future.”
