"Our vision is to become a bigger and sustainable fund, by adopting a partnership approach to secure additional capital and take advantage of commercial opportunities.  We have chosen to partner with Ask If to enable us to successfully achieve that vision, based on the integrated solution they have created to solve the issues preventing the RF sector from growing in line with the potential we see”

Arthur Foreman
MD - Finance for Enterprise

"Our decision to collaborate with Ask Inclusive Finance was made to address our reliance on public sector finance and to put a halt to the start/stop nature of these funding sources. The AskIf platform will improve efficiency across the network opening up opportunities for the private sector to invest into small business that mainstream banks won’t serve. Ultimately this will enable the sector to support many more small businesses to grow, improving the lives and well-being of a greater proportion of the population than today."
