NACCA supports First Nations, Métis, and Inuit entrepreneurs by providing funding for Aboriginal businesses and communities through Aboriginal Financial Institutions (AFIs). When entrepreneurs start new ventures, they take on all of the risks – and rewards – of launching that business.
Watch Heather Abbey (ShopIndig), Devon Fiddler (SheNative Goods Inc.) and Kendal Netmaker (Neechie Gear Inc.) share a day in their lives. Then sign up to get more info on how you can become an entrepreneur too!
A strong partnership between the entrepreneur and the local AFI is critical for success. In addition to developmental lending, AFIs provide support services such as business loans, non-repayable contributions, financial and management consulting, and business start-up and aftercare services.
