After working on a friend’s market stall Jeannette decided she wanted to operate her own one. She had never previously run her own business although she had experience working in retail and fashion.
Consequently she contacted the Westminster Enterprise Centre for help. She attended a full programme of business start-up and development workshops. Jeannette also regularly met with her business advisor.
He helped her produce a business plan and financial forecasts that enabled Jeannette to successfully apply for a £500 business grant. This funding was used towards her initial stock of shopping bags.
Currently Jeannette is test trading at Maida Hill Market in London W9.
