What is a social enterprise?

A social enterprise is a business with a social purpose that has – or is striving towards – a commercially sustainable business model and delivers social impact to the chosen social cause.

This business must have a clearly defined social mission with social benefits as the primary objective of its establishment. Whether it is for-profit or not-for-profit, a social enterprise typically undertakes commercial activities to generate revenues and earn profits so that there would be lasting social impact.

What funding options from DBS are available for social enterprises?

Under the Social Enterprise Package, we offer unsecured business loans at a preferential rate of 5% fixed p.a. We also set aside funds to be given out as Project Grants that support meaningful initiatives by social enterprises. Please call us at 1800 222 2200 for more information.
