The financing agency Fund Access is being asked to step up its game, even as it's on course for a record year of loan disbursements.
The entity is a developmental financing agency for micro, small and medium enterprises in Barbados.
Saturday evening it hosted the last of three mix and mingle events for this year, which were designed to showcase client products and provide an opportunity for networking.
It was there that Minister of Small Business Dwight Sutherland, paid tribute to the agency for its two decades of support to hundreds of businesses and entrepreneurs.
He also served notice that it will be called upon to do more.
In his address, Fund Access chairman David Simpson, said 2018 could very well be the agency's best year for loan approvals.
