Craig’s story

My business started as a dream to have acres of lavender to draw people in to a relaxing Agritourism destination. After much discussion and planning we started with a few plants and made several products (as organic as possible) and set out to the area craft shows. We have since joined a new farmers market and have added a number of products. We have made great progress with our development of products and wish to expand into more retail establishments. 

This loan is special because:

It helps this organic farmer from Virginia to repay debts and expand his production

Business Description

Our business seeks to bring French luxury to the average consumer and create amazing products for everyone’s enjoyment!

What is the purpose of this loan?

First we would like to pay off about credit card debit that we used to purchase inventory. In doing so we will lower our expenses in interest. Second we have the opportunity to enter into a consignment agreement with a retailer. However the initial amount of product that will be required by the retailer is roughly $5000 in inventory. That includes labels, containers and ingredients. The retailer has 4 locations in our immediate area and wants specific scents and products for their business. Products will be branded under our name and label but will be exclusive to that retailer. Third we have another opportunity to partner with a couple of B&B/Hoteliers for products for their rooms. Initial costs will be around $500. Our brand will not be leading on the label however the property name and “created by Chat Noir” will be on the label. Fourth we would like to establish an amenities kit for private aviation. We currently offer small bags of travel size products However we would like to establish a more uniform product to market to operators.
