This article is an exploratory survey of sources
of financing for family and non-family businesses. Access
to appropriate sources of financing remains a constant
expectation, mainly for family businesses which constitute
one of the most important segments of the Moroccan
economy. The aim of this research is to show the extent to
which family and non-family businesses are funded in
total, through external funds and financing and their
sources of funding. In order to do so, we apply a single
sample of GEM (2017-2018) reporting the financing of
family and non-family businesses in Morocco. A
representative sample of 295 companies was interviewed
in Morocco in 2017- 2018 by the Global Entrepreneurship
Monitor, with reports on their financing.
The findings in this paper suggest that this research
can help policy makers to formulate a program of SMEs'
support at different stages of the entrepreneurship chain
