Donna’s hair salon successfully took off, drawing in customers and creating profits from the opening day. She was thrilled to begin pursuing a career she was passionate about.
Like many other states, Delaware issued a statewide shutdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic affecting thousands of businesses across Delaware, including the White Mink Hair Salon. Without customers, Donna needed to access capital to keep her salon afloat and she applied for ERC with a different organization, only to find a difficult and confusing application process where they were constantly asking for additional paperwork.
Our ERC shutdown group reached out to Donna, conducted a small interview, and immediately got her set up with our NEWITY application. With clear guidelines, Donna was able to forward all the necessary paperwork to our ERC team, and we helped her receive an additional $7,000.
With access to NEWITY’s website and email newsletters to update our members, Donna felt that with NEWITY she was always in the loop.
With the additional capital, Donna was able to pay the rent, utilities, and keep her business going. Our NEWITY team is delighted to have helped Donna continue the White Minke Hair Salon, her lifelong dream.
