Seminar will help community groups with project finance advice

At the recent Clann Credo 20th Anniversary Conference in Dublin, President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, with Sr. Patricia Wall of Slieve Ardagh Rural Development Company Ltd.

Clann Credo, Ireland’s leading Community Loan Finance Provider, is hosting a free information seminar on Monday, November 21, from 7pm to 9pm at Halla Na Féile in Cashel.

The seminar is aimed at community and voluntary groups who could benefit from Clann Credo’s Community Loan Finance. These include sports clubs, those wishing to avail of the LEADER grants and any community group who could transform their community with Community Loan Finance.

Many community leaders have big dreams of what their organisation could do, but finance is often an obstacle.

With Community Loan Finance Clann Credo helps organisations make their vision a reality.

Two decades of expertise is at hand from Clann Credo’s regional Social Finance Executives.
