Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of small family businesses including my own.
Im a single parent with 3 kids and started my own business after redundancy about 3 years ago with a franchised oven cleaning business which is successful and award winning, however our bank is not forth coming in responding with any support or even communication. We are not an essential service so have not operated since just before the middle of March, resulting in over 6 weeks of no income. Yes I have sulked, worried and had sleepless nights however i need to look at this as a an opportunity at how we can adapt and We want to adapt where possible and offer additional services/income streams including oven repairs for which will help to secure and grow my business. We however need training this but due to no income I cant afford to complete the course. Please help and support a small business. I can show proof that money raised will be used to pay for the course and also tools needed. I would be more than happy to treat as a loan and pay back as business progresses, we have made a huge impact with our oven cleaning business and confident we can do the same with our oven repair side of the business. Thank you for taking the time to read, stay safe and well.
