As a new, small business, one of PonyBabe's greatest challenges has been cashflow. Not very exciting or glamorous, but it's the truth! It's simply tricky to grow a company without much money.
As a budding entrepreneur I've been learning to take the challenges as opportunities to learn and problem solve in new ways, and this spirit of curiosity and adventure led me to launch a crowdfunding campaign through Kiva.org.
It's a truly remarkable community - in which strangers from all over the world loan as little as $25 to small business owners, to help build strong local economies.
I'm thrilled to share that PonyBabe's campaign to raise a $9,000 loan has been successfully funded... and this means I can move full steam ahead on producing more of the current styles, as well as developing patterns and samples for Spring/Summer 2018.
