Our investment committees

Investment committees are at the heart of community credit. These committees are a special feature of AMCG compared to other financial support organizations in the region, as the promoters applying for financing from AMCG must present their projects to their MRC’s investment committee.

Each MRC has its own community investment committee. Made up of entrepreneurs, socio-economic stakeholders, and people passionate about entrepreneurship, the role of these committees is central to Accès Microcrédit Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine’s activities. In fact, it is people from the community who analyze the applications for financing that are submitted to us. Thanks to their experience, their expertise and their knowledge of the community, the committee members are well positioned to know the realities and the challenges related to starting a business in their corner of Gaspésie and the Magdalen Islands.
