Other WeBC Programs and Services

WeBC approaches funding differently from traditional financial institutions. Our eligibility criteria is broader and we provide each funded business with complimentary services that support the woman entrepreneur in developing and strengthening her business.

Our core funding program provides business loans of up to $150,000, and women who apply for $50,000 or less may qualify for our Equal Access to Capital (EAC) program which does not require specific security. We are also the BC Loan Fund Partner of the WEOC National Loan Fund.

Our programs pair you with a mentor or group that fits your needs so you can build a strong support system. You’ll gain fresh perspectives and feel confident in your decision making as you grow your business. In 2023/24, we’re delighted to offer One-to-One Mentoring and Growth Peer Mentoring Groups.
