According to the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket), 23% of Sweden’s social enterprises state that they have applied for but been refused a bank loan. The corresponding figure for traditional companies is 3-4% according to The Swedish Federation of Business Owners (Företagarna). Social enterprises are excluded from the financial market due to lack of knowledge among investors as well as the entrepreneurs – and lack of securities.
