Menter Llanfrothen in Porthmadog, Wales, was formed by inhabitants of three neighbouring hamlets to buy the village shop, post office and petrol station in order to support local ownership within the Welsh-speaking community.
We intend to empower people and support the personal development of disadvantaged individuals, by financing businesses that address specific social objectives. Lending in this sector is to for and not-for-profit employment programmes, youth help centres and integration programmes, among others.
