A trio of companies have become the latest recipients of financial support from the NI Small Business Loan Fund.
Push Fitness, which is based at Enniskillen in County Fermanagh, will use its share of the funding to renovate premises and satisfy working capital requirements. Meanwhile, Castlehill Candles has taken on two additional members of staff and intends to hire a further two every year until 2015 as part of plans to ramp up exports.
Completing the list is Learning Space NI, which has been able to employ two new members of staff and fulfil larger orders.
