Nicola Edwards

Micro Loans Fund Manager

Nicola heads a team of Investment Executives based across Wales focused on making micro loans of between £1,000 and £50,000 to ambitious small businesses with a range of investment needs, such as start-up costs, capital expenditure and stock purchases. The loans can also be used to unlock much-needed additional investment.

She has worked in small business banking for most of her 25-year banking career and has previously managed a 200-strong portfolio of local businesses with a wide range of funding requirements. Prior to joining Finance Wales in 2013, Nicola led a team of 12 in her roles as an Area Business Manager with Barclays.

Small businesses are part of the fabric of the Welsh economy. Many of them have the potential to make an even greater contribution to it. I’ve spent most of my career working with start-ups and small/micro-businesses and I’ve seen how the right financial support can have a positive impact on them.
