Business and Commercial Finance

Commercial Loans

Welcome to Dobies Cumbria Finance, if you're looking to expand your business or secure your next development as part of your company's property portfolio, we are here to offer you a faster more streamlined approach to acquiring that business loan.

We offer loans from £5,000 to £100,000 and as a family run business, we can work with you and your business as an individual and look at the whole picture rather than just performing a tick box exercise.

We often lend to people and organisations that may have not been successful on a more traditional lending journey.
