Convenient Capital for Irish Retailers...

Successful convenience store retailer and CSNA member, Noel Kenny, is one of a growing number of Irish business owners who have used Linked Finance to access fast and hassle-free finance.

Noel Kenny has been successfully operating Spar Leopardstown for more than 18 years. 

Situated in a very established South Dublin suburb, the shop occupies a central spot in the area's retail centre and is right beside the ever-popular Leopardstown Inn.

Right in the heart of the local community, this popular neighbourhood shop benefits from a steady local trade; providing nearby residents with everything you would expect from a modern convenience store.

Furthermore, the shop's close proximity to Leopardstown racecourse means that Noel's shop attracts a lot of passing trade. The famous racecourse's year-round calendar brings high numbers of visitors to the area and Noel works to ensure he has the stock levels necessary to satisfy this increased demand.

Like any modern retailer, Noel also recognises the importance of having seasonal stock items available for periods like Easter, Halloween and Christmas.

“Linked Finance is a real game-changer when it comes to business loans. They make the whole process so quick and convenient.”

In 2018, Noel was looking for alternative ways to fund an annual stocking loan. He learned about Linked Finance from a contact in the CSNA who had recently partnered with the P2P lending platform and decided to try it for himself.

Linked Finance connects Irish SMEs with an online lending community eager to lend to local businesses at competitive rates. The platform takes the hassle out of business loans and makes the whole process very simple.

Noel was impressed with the experience and delighted with the ease of application, quick decision and business loans provided in just 24 hours. Noel believes Linked Finance will remain at the top of the list whenever SPAR Leopardstown needs access to finance.

Linked Finance worked really well for us. Applying was easy, approval came quickly and we had access to the funds within 24 hours. I would highly recommend it to other retailers.
