Loans that suit small businesses

Prospa

When Francis Swart’s home-based Auckland skin and beauty business “Gorgeous You” experienced a period of rapid growth, she realised it was time to expand into a larger space.

After experiencing the run-around from traditional lenders, she came across Prospa on social media. They provided her with the funds she needed to open a new salon premises and do a complete fit out and refresh, all with an easy-to-manage weekly repayment plan that suited business cash flow.

Next step for Francis is to work with a business coach to grow the business further – and Prospa will be right alongside her.

Are you a fan of fast fashion?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Many of us grew up flocking to Glassons, Hallenstein's, Cotton On and Just Jeans for our hardy perennials - jeans, t-shirts, summer dresses - and some of us still do.

But we're increasingly becoming aware that buying a $20 t-shirt that won't last the distance isn't that great for the environment.

While some of us are pledging to only buy second hand or to invest in statement pieces - more expensive items that will last a long time- not all of us have that luxury.

We're wanting to speak to someone who isn't giving up their fast fashion any time soon, whether it's for economic or style reasons, personal choice or indifference to the environment. Maybe you're a student who likes the choice chain store fashion brings, or perhaps you're a parent whose children are growing too fast to risk splashing out on expensive clothing.

If this sounds like you, please email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz.
