“It will be available to sole traders, joint ventures, and partnership businesses on its own or those that provide services to other industries. The 10% equity required for loan packages will be provided through this $1 million allocation and will greatly support female entrepreneurs’ access to financing.”

Sayed-Khaiyum says the government will support businesses of all sizes as they remain flexible to develop joint solutions to every serious and unforeseen challenge facing our recovery.
