Hi, My Name is Maryely Tejada and I am the Owner and Founder of Ollipop Baby Food LLC. My heart is to help parents like me find different options for feeding their children and help educate parents on the importance of nutrition in the first 1000 days of life. I want to make good quality sustainably sourced food for children and make it affordable to all parents. I also want to start a non for profit through my business to help feed hungry children in my community.
I NEED YOUR HELP!
I started my business about 3 years ago and when I started my business I was with my partner who was helping me to push the business forward. I also had a full-time day job to help with my general needs. At the moment I have none of these things to help me.
Now I am a full-time badass Single Mom Entrepreneur! That's right!
I am doing this all on my own. I lost my day job on my birthday, directly due to the events that happened in 2020. (Pandemic/COVID 19). But I saw those events as a clear sign for me to transition from being an employee to being a full-time Business Owner and mother to my son. Oliver.
I have applied for all kinds of help and grants for my business but do not qualify for help because most grants require you to be in business for a specific amount of time and have employees.
With your donations here is how I can accelerate the vision of Ollipop Baby Food
*Purchase all Permits
*Ensure & Secure my Business
*Invest in a physical location
*Begin to purchase all equipment for production
*Invest in delivery vehicles
*Start my non for profit
Ollipop Baby Food is still open for business and is operating as usual with all safety guidelines set in place. We are doing what we can with what we have!
I wanted to open up this option for those who do not have children and can not actually purchase our products but still believe in the vision and would like to help a single momma with a small business. This will also help me to accomplish all this debt-free!
For further information on my business please check out our website and on our social media platforms.
Please help me by donating whatever you see fit today.
I greatly appreciate your donation of any amount.
