Motor City Soap Company recently entered Martha Stewart’s American Made competition! This American Made contest recognizes the “ingenuity and excellence in the fields of craft, design, food and style” with a grand prize of $10,000 and a chance to have lunch with Martha Stewart herself in New York City!

How It Works: Judges will select 800 finalists from the pool of nominees until September 8th. Then another 200 wild-card finalists will be selected based on the nominees’ social shares via their American Made profiles. Of the 1,000 finalists, the judges will select 9 American Made Award Winners and the audience will choose one Audience Choice Award Winner.

Motor City Soap Company Approved for Kiva Zip Fundraising

21 Dec

Last month Motor City Soap Company applied to Kiva Zip as a potential borrower through their micro lending program. I am excited to announce that as of yesterday evening, the application was approved, and my business is now accepting person-to-person loans!

The purpose of this loan is to purchase enough carrier oils (olive, sunflower, coconut and palm) and essential oils to increase my soapmaking production in 2014. I currently produce between two and three batches per month and I plan to double production next year to meet the increasing demand for my soaps. My customer base (customers like you!) grows weekly and I am beginning to seek retail outlets with wholesale opportunities so I will need to build an inventory to sustain these sales.
