|Fiduciam granted a €1.3 million, three-year commercial loan to Hatton Farm in the Republic of Ireland. Hatton Farm is one of Ireland’s leading potato producers and is also a major Christmas tree grower. Like many other Irish farms, Hatton Farm was really let down badly by the traditional banks following the financial crisis. Marina Hatton commented: “Fiduciam believed in us when the big banks were simply not there anymore. This farm has been in our family for three generations and it’s thanks to the Fiduciam loan that we can grow our business and secure our children’s future.” As a sign of gratitude, Hatton Farm offered Fiduciam one of its home-grown Christmas trees for the festive season. Two employees went over to chop down the tree and carry it home.
