Financing a Growing BusinessJane, Georgia, and Melody started a cupcake business in their final year in college, registering the company as ‘Sugary Bites’. They needed measuring cups, mixers, a food processor, and other baking equipment to prepare for production. This equipment cost a total of $1500, which the entrepreneurs financed through a loan from a bank at 12.5% compounded monthly, amortized over two years. Within a week, they started making cupcakes and delivering them to their college cafeteria.Within two months, Sugary Bites cupcakes was the talk of the college campus and the bakery business was making modest profits. After graduating, the three budding entrepreneurs decided to expand their operation. They rented a retail store in the city and added ten new cupcake flavours to their product line. They also hired an assistant to run the store and a delivery person to handle personal orders.After two years of successfully managing Sugary Bites, they saved $21,600 to use as a down payment to purchase a small shop where they could make their cupcakes, and a delivery truck to deliver them.
