Barnsley-based Borks and Walks, which provides dog walking and pet sitting services, has secured funding from start-up loans company First Enterprise – Enterprise Loans to expand into e-commerce.
The company is actively seeking wholesale suppliers to establish an online store for pet products, particularly focusing on natural chews and treats, and the £2,000 funding will be used to increase stock and for advertising campaigns to grow the business.
Jessica Chambers, Founder of Borks and Walks, said: “I had a massive amount of support from my business advisor, aiding me in the next steps to growing my business. The loan has provided me with the capabilities to make a real impact and provided me with the means to pursue my passion and grow my business further.”
Angie Krawczyk, business adviser at First Enterprise – Enterprise Loans, added: “Jess’ passion, enthusiasm and organisation skills made the decision and process an easy one for First Enterprise to pursue. Her clients will be very lucky to have a true animal lover taking care of their pets.
“I’m confident that with the help of the Start-Up Loans funding, Borks and Walks will become a successful business run by an ambitious and dedicated young entrepreneur.”
