Gallagher uilleann pipes(Photo credit: rocks & pipes)Rural development organisation LEADER East has said that they are ‘open for business’ and have called on SMEs in their area to contact them.

It made the call following a report by ISME which stated that nearly half of small businesses that applied for bank loans had their applications rejected. LEADER East represents development companies in 11 counties in the east of Ireland.

LEADER is an EU initiative which provides a total of €425m in funding to companies, start-ups and initiatives in food, agriculture, tourism, technology, creative industries and the green and community sectors.

Commenting on the the ISME findings, Justin Larkin, spokesman, LEADER East, said: "It is regrettable that small to medium businesses are still finding it difficult to access credit from banks. However, the LEADER programme is open for business and continues to fund a wide range of community and private sector businesses.
