Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries or days when you simply wish to show your appreciation for someone, are just some of the reasons why people patronise the florist. There have been a burgeoning of flower / florist boutiques and gift shops in Singapore. Step into any shopping centre, or even your neighbourhood malls and you’ll find at least one. At SBL Singapore, we understand the costs needed to remain relevant in such a competitive industry. This is why we are here to offer you with the timely financial help that you seek.
We have helped quite a few young Singaporeans achieve their dreams of opening their very own florist / flower bouquet gift shops. One of which is Ms Teo Jing Hao. After graduating from Ngee Ann Polytechnic with a diploma in Arts Business Management, she worked briefly as a project executive in a performing arts organisation.
She always had a flair and interest for flower arrangement and even had a small online side business where she arranged, crafted and designed floral bouquets. After doing so for three years, she felt that it was time to look forward.
She had bigger goals in mind. Not only did she want to sell flower bouquets online, she wanted to set up her own gift shop and was interested in providing flower arrangement classes. That said, it is no easy feat to set up a business entirely on your own. Things such as manpower, rental, advertising, equipment and furniture costs have to be factored in.
This was where she sought the help of SBL Singapore to help fund part of the cost of her business. Today, Ms Teo Jing Hao owns a humble flower bouquet gift shop in the heartlands that not only offers flower arrangement services but also classes.
