Hi does anyone have empty cardboard boxes for free?
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.
A fire which tore through 1.6 hectares of scrub on the Māngere Mountain is being treated as suspicious. The blaze took a hold of a large area of "knee-high" grass near the mountain's crater and rim area about 2.30am on Wednesday. The slow moving fire, which also burnt some pōhutukawa trees, could be smelt by residents across the region, including as far north as Albany. Police are making inquiries.
Did you smell smoke this morning?
