Know that financial assistance is available to start a new business or take on an existing one. Here is an overview of the funding programs that will help start your business.

Funding your business: financial support for women entrepreneurs

"Egalite femmes" Loan guarantee

This program is implemented by France Active, a not-for-profit agency whose purpose is to provide aspiring women entrepreneurs access to bank loans via a guarantee scheme. The guarantee scheme will cover up to 80% of a bank loan up to an amount of 50.000 euros per project.

"Initiative France" honour loan

This is an unsecured and interest-free loan granted by Initiative France . It allows women entrepreneurs to build up capital, a way to later access larger loans. The amount of this honour loan depends on both the nature of the project and the capital needs. It usually goes from 3000 to 50.000 euros. The national average is 9.700 euros.

Wom'energy : a program that promotes female entrepreneurship
