Start-up loans 'filling gap in market' - David Cameron
David Cameron has said the Start-up Loans Company is filling a gap in the financing market, and could create thousands of businesses.
The prime minister was speaking after the funding available to the scheme was increased from £82m to £112m.
The scheme, which offers young entrepreneurs loans of about £2,500, had originally been aimed at 18-to-24-year-olds, but is now being expanded to those aged up to 30.
