Mablethorpe Community Loans Fund

This website provides people within Mablethorpe, Trusthorpe and Sutton-on-Sea (Lincolnshire, England) the ability to access a loan to help them through their time of need. The Coastal Community Challenge (part of the Big Local scheme in the UK) identified a problem with loan sharks targeting the vulnerable, and chose to run a community loans scheme with a very low-interest rate to deter people from borrowing money from the doorstop lenders.

Applicants are able to create an account, and fill out a short form with their personal information. Once complete, they will select a service provider, which they will then be assigned to. Once the service provider has contacted them for a meeting, stage 2 will commence, and together with a trained professional, they will work together to complete their loan. After the loan has been submitted, the loan provider can look at all the given information, and grant, or deny, the loan.

This website gives the loans provider (A member from Experience Enterprise the ability to check the progress of all applications that have been submitted to the site, the ability to add and remove service providers, and a full content management system to have complete control over the website.
