A loan helped us develop new products, purchase equipment, and grow our small business.
I started crafting products in 2015. I created a hair oil to help address post partum hair loss that I was experiencing. I was not happy with the products on the market and needed something that actually worked. Since then my dream has been to create a line of natural products and open a boutique. Shortly after the pandemic began, I noticed my sons eczema began flaring up. Since I did not want to use the medication anymore I started researching natural remedies; as a result I created the Black Soap Cleanser. After telling my friends and family of this new recipe, they asked for some to treat their own eczema or that of their kids. As I saw the increased interest in people wanting natural, personal care products I decided to launch Kurlys Beauty Boutique- where I create natural, personal care products such as whipped body butter, body oil, and sugar scrubs to name a few. I am looking to expand the product line as well as purchase commercial equipment which would allow me to keep up with demand as the products sell out frequently. The biggest motivator is hearing customers rave about how they have been looking for products like mine and they love that the product contains truly natural ingredients they know. It is clear from speaking with those in the community at street fairs and pop up shops that an affordable line of natural products is wanted (and needed!) I love to make others happy as that in turn makes me happy. I am so excited to take this next step, however I need your help to get there! I want to thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me and your consideration in helping secure financing to grow my business.
