L’Îlot Café-Buvette

Vanessa Loignon | The Magdalen Islands

L’Îlot Café-Buvette is a warm and welcoming place, reminiscent of a cozy family nest. It’s the perfect place to drop off for a coffee or beer and a bite to eat. Sandwiches, salads and pastries are served, as well as coffees, beers from Quebec microbreweries and wines. It’s also a business recognized in the Islands for its innovative actions in terms of sustainable development. Various activities and events are offered, with the aim of revitalizing the offering for local customers.

The loan granted by AMCGÎM helped the business take off, among other things for the acquisition of equipment used in the kitchen and for coffee preparation.

“I’m very grateful to Accès Microcrédit Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine, who played a crucial role in getting my business, L’Îlot Café-Buvette, off the ground. Right from the start, the Accès Microcrédit team listened to my specific needs and offered invaluable support. Their personalized approach and deep understanding of my entrepreneurial goals made all the difference. Thanks to their loan, I was able to launch my café-buvette in optimal conditions.

The process was smooth and transparent, and the team guided me every step of the way, from financial planning to project execution. Their expertise and sound advice enabled me to make informed decisions and overcome the initial challenges with confidence.

Today, L’Îlot is growing rapidly, and I’m convinced that Accès Microcrédit’s support has been instrumental in this success. I highly recommend their services to any would-be entrepreneur looking for a reliable and committed partner.”
