I would like to turn my hobby into a thriving business, I am fundraising for equipment and Nail Art supplies.

New stretch target

With extra funding i would be able to move over to better quality products and expand to add different ideas and more elaborate designs i would also be able to create my own website and create a bigger portfolio.

Hi my name is Angela and i have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis BUT i am refusing to let it stop my dream of running my own business and becoming independent 

so lets start at the beginning of my story (i promise its not long) i have always had a love for painting my nails, on days when i was stuck at home it let a bit of sunshine to my life a bit of colour but when energy let me down i just couldn't do it any more along came my knight in shining armour (my husband) he brought me a gel UV lamp for Christmas and gave me back my sunshine i have since over the past 7 years had so much fun creating nail designs and exploring different colours and also doing other peoples nails like my daughter and her friends, i had on more than one occasion been told you should do this as a business but you know yourself you think your not good enough and it takes a while for it to sink in and so i finally feel i have what it takes i have a store on Etsy and its doing great but i need some help

And that's where you guys come in i am a little independent business and so all Grants available i cannot apply for, for example i haven't been trading long enough, i don't need a large £25k grant, I'm not a tourist business etc etc trust me i've looked 

What i am is a disabled person wanting to feel alive to be part of the working force to feel equal, I have put in whatever funds i had to start this business off but I'm still lacking so much to make this take off properly so i am asking you to back me and back my dream.
