I called upon the experts at BDC because of their experience with SMEs and because SME development is their passion. My business is financially sound; all that was missing was a boost to help me make strategic decisions. The BDC consultant helped me to clarify and structure my objectives and even encouraged me to aim higher!

BDC’s loan extension and capital postponements made me very happy. And the Xpansion Loan flexible terms really help with the cyclical needs of my business. BDC stood out in terms of understanding life events and supporting us through this journey.
