  • access to financing

    Present your business plan to your local partner community organization.

    An advisor will help you draw up and analyze your business plan and direct you to the resources you need.

    Need help drawing up your business plan?
  2. 2

    If your business plan is viable but your personal investment and guarantees not sufficient to get conventional financing, your plan may be forwarded to a loan committee for approval.

    Financing obtained through Desjardins Microcredit to Businesses can be considered as a personal investment, and therefore help you gain access to other sources of financing.
