How Mystic Jungle has benefitted from a LEAP grant

Mystic Jungle case study

Say hello to another brilliant local business owner who has benefitted from our LEAP grant programme - Kasia of Mystic Jungle.

We spoke to Kasia about how the grant has helped her business adapt during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"My name is Kasia and I’m a local houseplants supplier for homes and businesses. I started my business at the beginning of COVID but the prolonged lockdown meant that fewer people could reach me to buy their plants in person and I had to focus mostly on local deliveries.

"Applying for a LEAP grant enabled me to purchase a van to use for delivering plants directly to my customers, but also to take on bigger jobs delivering bigger plants to local businesses.

"The advertising graphics on the van raised my visibility and made my small start-up business look more professional and attract a better range of clients. Without the help of the grant I wouldn’t be able to afford it."
