Helping Business for over 25 years

Louth County Enterprise Fund was established 25 years ago by the International Fund for Ireland. The purpose then was to provide loan funding to entrepreneurs and small businesses that had difficulty securing finance from the established lending institutions. Its mission now is as it was then and support is available for most business sectors to help finance start-ups and business expansion. In the intervening years, the Fund has supported 100's of such projects and generated employment in both the manufacturing and service sectors. Its activities are confined to County Louth, only. Similar enterprise funds exist in counties Monaghan, Cavan, Leitrim, Sligo and Donegal.
