Santa Fe New Mexican!
"It takes a village to produce a business, and Daven Lee has done just that -- in the form of her Milk and Honey Soap, which is made in Santa Fe and sold all over the country.
"Sales in fact doubled in 2011, despite the weak national economy.
"In a telephone interview, Lee said her "original assistance" from the Santa Fe Small Business Development Center came in the form of helping create her first business plan and then obtaining a microloan from Accion, a small business lender.
"'That started me with the production of my wholesale line of products,' Lee said. "They also helped me with the first round of financial projections" for her new company. 'I put those together when I was looking for other funding,' she said.
"Lee also thanked Mykris for helping her with her business, including nominating the company 'for this great honor' from the SBDC.
"'Daven is extremely passionate about all aspects of her business,' Mykris said in a statement. 'She considers her goats and bees to be her primary business partners.'
"Lee and other SBDC clients will be honored Wednesday at at awards banquet at Hotel St. Francis in Santa Fe. Lt. Gov. John Sanchez will be the featured speaker. "
