Training

The very first step I took in starting my business was joining Women Entrepreneurs and completing the Business Plan seminar. Through a myriad of meetings, phone calls and emails, my Business Advisor has been my champion. She has built me back up in times of trouble and has been there to celebrate my success. As I venture down my 11th year in business the support from Women Entrepreneurs will continue to guide my growth for the next decade.

Business Loans

We lend you more than an ear.

Financial support for entrepreneurs is not always easy to find. W.E. wants to assist you financially, as well as with advisory support.

W.E. provides financing for projects when traditional financing is hard to access, and offers assistance in creating credit relationships with other financial institutions.

W.E. offers loans up to $150,000 to new and existing qualified businesses which are owned and operated by women. To be eligible, the business must be operating or about to operate in Saskatchewan; you must be able to contribute 20 percent in equity toward the project; and be a full member with W.E. for the term of the loan.

Male partners and stakeholders will also be eligible, when women own more than 50 percent of the business.

To apply for a loan through W.E., members must provide a completed loan application, personal financial statement and business plan.

More financial assistance

W.E. administers the John and Bernice Williams and North Prairie Developments Equity Investment Fund, set up specifically to empower entrepreneurs.

Potential applicants will be identified at the business advisory stage. All applicants must provide a completed loan application, a personal financial statement, and business plan.

For more information on this program, please contact a W.E. office.

For information on our loan redress and appeal process contact women entrepreneurs.

 

Training

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.
