Ethical loans resist crisis

Despite the economic crisis these days, Triodos bank is still standing strong. Even better, the bank has something to celebrate: they lend over more then 200 million pounds for the first time. Triodos bank distinguishes itself from other banks, because it is borrowing money only to people with ethical standards. The bank owes its success to the vision it has on clients; a simple, straight bond with their borrowers leads to a never seen interest in their method. Examples of their borrowers are the Better Food Company and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage. The future looks good for Triodos bank, because their balance is very healthy and they don’t need to lend from other banks. (Bristol)
