Lenders have supported more than 1.1 million businesses with £46.3bn of government-backed emergency coronavirus finance, Treasury figures have revealed.
The data is based on support provided through the coronavirus business interruption loan scheme (CBILS), bounce back loans (BBL) and the future fund, which are gradually gaining more involvement from peer-to-peer lenders such as Funding Circle.
Almost 1.05m small and micro businesses have received a total of £31.7bn through the BBL scheme, an increase of £770m over the past week, the Treasury said.
