New business owners in Guernsey have explained how the coronavirus pandemic pushed them to launch their ideas.
Natalie Robins was struggling to find a job before she decided to set up Les Frens bakery from her home in St Martin.
She offers baked goods on a trolley from her driveway after managing to order all of her equipment online.
“One morning I had five people queuing in the drive at quarter to eight, and I don’t actually put everything out until eight,” she said.
“I think my record was 55 minutes for sausage rolls and an hour and 10 minutes for 98 cupcakes and about 70 sausage rolls.”
She added: “I’m absolutely loving it, I can work from home, I get a real buzz from putting the items on the trolley and people chatting in the driveway. It’s a real community spirit here in St Martin’s.”

Factoring and Commercial Finance continues to grow
Factoring and Commercial Finance continues to grow – A mechanism for real economy support in the EU
The data collated by the EU Federation for the Factoring and Commercial Finance Industry (EUF) shows that in 2019 factoring and commercial finance volumes in the EU grew overall by 7.9% to reach €1.91 Trillion. As before, 80% of this represented domestic business and the balance international.
This rate of growth – which equaled that seen in 2018 – again clearly outpaces the increase in GDP in Europe and continues to demonstrate the increasingly vital role factoring and commercial finance is playing in developing the real economy, providing principally SME businesses with much needed working capital.
Funding of €275Bn is supporting around 280,000 European businesses, helping them deliver real growth, real employment and demonstrable business success.

I guess it’s about time to shut down this blog, Top Finance Blog. It’s been a nice run of 11 years and initially I had a lot of fun and made some nice money, but those days are gone and it’s time to move on.
Since I never had many return visitors or subscribers and had only one comment in the last 5 months, I doubt anyone will actually read this. But that’s okay because I’m turning off comments in any case, so I’ll probably never know if anyone ever cared about most of the content here in the last few years or so.
However, if there were things here that interested you, here’s a bit of information for you. Many of the articles here will be repurpose elsewhere. They’ll either go to my accountant’s blog, who I write for, or my relatively local blog, Syracuse Wiki, where
