Lynne Lowther, Director, believes that the Stoke-on-Trent Business Loan Fund ‘has helped her business take a big leap forward.’
Kindred Spirits Ltd, trading under the franchise name of Il Gusto, is a retailer of wines, oils and vinegars with stores in Leek and at the Trentham Gardens Shopping Village.
How the loan helped
“My financial adviser recommended that I contact the loan fund after my bank was unable to provide me with a business loan. The purpose of the loan was to safeguard the jobs of 8 people and make the future of the business more sustainable, by investing in staff training and implementing a new state-of-the-art cloud based inventory management system. I am incredibly grateful for the way in which BCRS supported me.”
