Laurie McQueen, Vigilant Global
Working for ACEM as a volunteer is a privilege and an honour. The people who make up the regular staff at ACEM remind me constantly that the world is full of good people who want to make a difference.
Marie Olafsdottir, Futurpreneur Canada
I am delighted to be able to give a hand to new entrepreneurs and to help them to give life to their projects!
Montreal Community Loan Fund
Leading player in microfinance / microcredit in Montreal, the Montreal Community Loan Fund provides financing and technical support.
I feel that the funds I invest can give people a chance to be creative, to learn new business skills, help create jobs, and just spread the money around! ACEM also works to enable accreditation of skills for people coming from outside of Canada, a project I particularly support.

Giving time to ACEM is a gift from me...to me. Meeting human beings from every corner of the world who chose Montreal as their new base and land of opportunities is a privilege.
Seize your opportunity : Finance, Governance & Entrepreneurship
This event is organized by ACEM Financement Communautaire Responsable in collaboration with the Réseau québécois du crédit communautaire.
The contibution of all investors, combined with the work of ACEM's staff and trained volunteers, is a local risk-free investment. It is an exceptional opportunity for those interested in socially responsible investing.
Fraiçois Aitsalem (A.K.A Harmony)
I was looking to invest in a microcredit organization that is helping other people. ACEM is a responsible organization that helps future entrepreneurs by making their business projects a reality!
It's not easy to find an organization which offers the opportunity to invest their savings as well as having human beings as a top priority. ACEM does that splendidly and I am lucky to live close by to measure the advantages for the community.
The human being is at the heart of the intervention of ACEM, and the organization offers attention and support to maximize their chances of success. This is an important way to fight poverty in Montreal. That's why I chose to support the work ACEM by becoming an investor.
