The West of England LEP area ESIF Strategy shows that it is difficult for micro and small businesses to access finance to grow their businesses. So an important action is to provide grant funding to help create new and expand existing micro and small businesses in rural areas.
Priority will be given to projects that:
• enable farming businesses to diversify into non-agricultural activities
• manufacture new products
• Adopt new processes
• Allow the applicant business to enter new markets including to start or increase exporting
