|Business and Lending|
The business development Service of the CFNV works with small business entrepreneurs to assist them with in business start-ups expansion and maintenance. We can assist you with business planning, operational and financial counselling and technical advice.
A great deal of the business services provided are non-financial nature, such as providing business information on government programs, business counselling, whether you are a CFNV client or not, local statistics and demographics and in some cases, industry (Revenue Canada ) statistics on particular industries.
A great deal of our time is spent assisting clients with the preparation of Business Plans and in particular on the cash flow, budget projections and market assessments, which all lenders now require, but most new entrepreneurs have not been exposed to in their previous life. In fact clients are often referred to us by their lenders to help with the actual business plan.
We can help you with developing a business plan, cash flow projections and to identify your start-up costs. If you require financial assistance we also have a small business loan service, for which you may qualify.
You do not need to be a CFNV client to access our financial or non-financial services.
