Oh baby, couple make flying start.
A MIDLAND entrepreneur has secured an order to place her baby oil product in 200 Boots stores after securing a PS10,000 finance package.
Lauren Taylor took inspiration from her baby to create the natural and organic coconut oil baby skincare range, called Kokoso Baby, which she launched with husband Mark. She then secured a deal to stock the products in 200 Boots stores nationwide.
In order to help the company grow quickly and fulfil this order, Mrs Taylor applied for and received a PS10,000 governmentbacked Start Up Loan and mentoring support from the Coventry and Warwickshire Reinvestment Trust (CWRT).
Mrs Taylor said: "CWRT listened, got excited by the potential in our business plan and offered advice and support and that's worth a lot to a new business. We had support throughout the whole loan application process."
