Close risk warning

As with most forms of investment, peer-to-peer lending carries a degree of risk to your capital; in this case, if the borrower is unable to repay their loan. At Assetz Capital, we seek to reduce this risk to our investors by taking asset security on every loan, with the added benefit of a discretionary Provision Fund for some of our investment accounts. Investment Account target interest rates should be considered along with the relevant Investment Account expected defaults & losses information. Past performance does not guarantee future performance. We recommend that prospective lenders read the Key Investor Information pages before investing.

Intro

The business planned to provide stables for rent and had a waiting list even before launch, meaning that these will be very quickly filled.

Husband and wife Clive and Alison Worker are managing the site with their daughter Lisa Worker. The facility will also provide care for horses that are recuperating; rider training and courses in horse husbandry, as well as collection; delivery and transportation of horses.

Impact

With the money, they’ve developed what was once a neglected site into a fully equipped equestrian centre to provide a comprehensive range of services, whilst creating up to ten new jobs for local people when the centre is running at full capacity.

The Workers have also installed a small shop, selling animal feed and horse bedding. There are currently plans to expand the shop and provide further amenities such as a craft store, horse rider coaching and an online order & delivery service for horse bedding.
