Do you need advice on managing your current business?
Are you starting a business?
Our business advising services are designed to assist you with your business concerns. Business Advisors at Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan work with you on a one-on-one basis. They provide business advising services in all areas of business management and development, including starting, purchasing, or expanding a business.
Business advising services are available to all women in the province. Clients are accommodated from Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan's office locations, one in Saskatoon and one in Regina. Business advising services are a benefit of a membership and clients are required to become a member to access this service.
"I wanted to say thank-you so much for everything you taught me, because you really did prepare me for what was ahead in my business. I felt that as I dealt with people and situations with my business I had the confidence in myself and my understanding of what I needed and wanted to do." - Carla Lorence
For more information on how to connect with a Business Advisor, please contact Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan.
Are you looking for lending to start or expand your business?
Through our lending services, Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan strives to create jobs and economic benefits throughout the province. Provide financing for projects where traditional financing is unavailable or difficult to access, as well as assisting women in developing credit relationships with other financial institutions.
Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan provides loans up to $150,000 to new or existing qualified businesses owned and operated by women. Our lending services and ongoing business support complement programs offered by traditional lenders.
To be eligible for a loan through Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan, the applicant must be operating or about to operate a business in the Province of Saskatchewan. The applicant must be able to contribute 20-25% equity towards the total project cost of the business, as well as assume a full membership with Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan for the term of the loan.
"After completing a large amount of research, a business plan and a five year financial forecast, I set out to secure financing. Even though I had great credit, I was unable to secure funds through conventional institutions. I went to W.E. with an ambitious dream. My experience with W.E. was beyond amazing. I was challenged and inspired to answer the hard questions about my business, given to-do lists and received hours of help with perfecting my start-up costs and sales forecasts. For a female business owner, this type of support has been invaluable and after only a few months I have secured all the financing necessary to make my business a reality." - Joscelyn Armstrong, Honey Bun Cafe
For more information on how to access our lending services, please contact Women Entrepreneurs of Saskatchewan.
