Back in January this year Mark Lovell described it on his blog as seeing "the potential for A4e to develop a relevant offer". A4e's bank is called Capitec Uk Ltd, and derives its name from a South African bank, Capitec. Lovell says that Capitec "helped us shape our thoughts and ideas on banking for people in poverty" but it is not clear whether there are closer links.
By the time that Lovell was writing about this, A4e's bank had already secured a grant of £1m from the Regional Industrial Development Board in Yorkshire, as we see from the minutes of Yorkshire Forward's board.
Yet the company is now dormant. What happened?
