Femmessor has carved an enviable reputation for the support it provides to businesses it has financed

Through a partnership with the Fonds pour les femmes entrepreneures FQ, Femmessor offers financing in the form of conventional loans to women-owned businesses.

Femmessor oversees initiatives to help entrepreneurs surround themselves with the right experts. We play an important role in listening to their needs and understanding their unique business context. Our knowledge of the entrepreneurial ecosystem allows us to properly support the entrepreneurs we finance. If needed, we may also refer them to the resources essential to their success.

By offering our clients training and specialized resources, we help entrepreneurs develop their knowledge and skills. In addition, with a wide range of organized activities, they can expand their business networks. Ultimately, we aim to give them confidence in their own actions and decisions.
