Chloe’s Fairy Cottage
I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada which can be a pretty wild place from an outsiders perspective. Step beyond the neon and glamour and its not much different then any other city. My love for music lead me to a 22 year career in the music business where I have owned and operated my one successful business. Four years ago I gave birth to my daughter, Chloe. This life changing event has lead me to take a different path. I want to have a business that my daughter can be an active part in, where she can learn valuable life skills and take ownership of what we create together.
I have a passion for natural health options and have been selling herbs, teas and essential oils to family and friends. Our next step is to start selling our products at farmers markets and events. Eventually we plan to open our own store.

More about this loan
Chloe’s Fairy Cottage sells herbs, herb formulas, essential oils, teas and fairy trinkets. I decided to start this business because my previous business of 22+ years is being phased out by the popularity of social media.
I chose this business because I want to make my living working with something I am passionate about while also including my daughter. My greatest challenge has been coming up with the funds to start something new when my previous source of income is diminishing. Our customers are people who are conscious about their health and prefer to use natures answers to support their health.
Our first goal is to set up at farmers markets and other events and eventually open a store. The aspect of this business that I am most proud and excited about is that I can include my daughter. She is excited! She loves working with me and helping our customers. She especially loves that I call this her business and that it is named after her. Seeing her take pride and a sense of ownership in our business makes my heart sing!
