It’s heartening to be able to pass on a success story. On Monday, 22 December KVAL TV in Eugene reported on the success of Sweet Skins, a minority women owned eco-clothing company which sews and sells women’s clothing made from organic fibers, and eco-fleece (made from recycled 2-liter soda bottles) wraps and hoodies.

The KVAL story, Down economy may open doors for entrepreneurs, also notes Lane MicroBusiness, a non-profit microenterprise development organization, which “holds free classes and grants loans to give micro-enterprise companies a chance to make it.”

I’m glad to see that small businesses are prospering, and that there are still organizations out there supporting local entrepreneurs. Thanks to KVAL News for reporting on this encouraging success.
