"I am filled with awe and deep gratitude for the support that we and other small businesses are receiving from our community and feel inspired to forge ahead".
We manufacture Jun, a sparkling probiotic drink made with raw honey and green tea that is rich in probiotics. Jun has become known as the “Champagne of Kombucha” due to its light, smooth, and unique flavor profile. So, it is the perfect immune boosting beverage for folks to be drinking now. We have been in business for 3 years. In those three years, we have generated over $500,000 in revenue, with each year showing 50% growth from the previous year. Unimpeded, we projected to generate $375,000 in 2020 with our traditional revenue streams.
Unfortunately 90% of our wholesale accounts have closed. We are in the process of putting into place an e-commerce platform, connecting with home delivery companies, offering home deliveries, & working with Rangeme so that we can be picked up by larger grocery stores.
This loan could not have come at a better time. We needed the cash infusion for operating expenses and fortunately, the money showed up in my bank account right in the nick of time, right before payroll!
With this loan we now have working capital and I can keep folks employed and invest in our online marketing and e-commerce platform to stimulate revenue. We plan to promote our DIY Jun Brewing kits because we have noticed a spike in goods related to self-sufficiency. With people less inclined to going out, anything that they can do for themselves in their homes is becoming in demand. We expect that with a push in our online marketing campaign our sales will take off allowing us not only to survive but to thrive!
In love and light,
