The client came to CCEDC for help in starting a new hair salon. CCEDC partnered with Wilkes University SBDC to counsel the client and assist her in drawing up her business plan and financial projections as well as demographics on the needs in the marketplace for her business.
After completing the First Step program with SBDC the client came to CCEDC to obtain a $17,000.00 loan through one of our revolving loan funds which she was able to secure. The loan is for renovations to the new salon space and for the purchase of equipment.
The salon has been extremely successful. An additional stylist and a manicurist have been hired and they are planning on expanding to also offer organic tanning and massage services.
