No, all we will do is allow you access for the period you have purchased to the data base of lenders and investors. It is for you to search the data base for possible lenders or investors. The site has facilities for every type of business concept and there are no qualifying criteria to be able to use the site. The Funding & Finance Boutique will consider any type of business

No. All that you are paying for and getting is access to a comprehensive data base of lenders, investors and finance houses who have expressed areas of interest. It for you, to contact them, and submit your project. We have no idea what lender, if any you may choose to select and what they may offer you.

7 What happens if I cannot find a lender?

We are sorry that we do not offer a success based service. We do not, under this service, offer an opinion on what you might do to enhance your chances.
