Asia’s Story

Asia was full of drive and enthusiasm to set up her own cleaning company. She was very experienced as she had worked for a cleaning company for many years but she needed some practical support to get her own company up and running.

"Pure has been there for me to bounce ideas and help me logistically."

Pure was able to help Asia to access some training on how to apply for a low repayment local authority loan and write a business plan. Asia has registered with HMRC and Pure have set up an interview for her with Job Centre Plus to discuss access to work funding.

Asia business Virtus Cleaning is now up and running and she has secured a contract with the London Aquatic Centre and was able to contract her own cleaners on a self employed basis for this role.

Asia is now busy working on new contracts including Mayfair apartments and her business, Virtus Cleaning, is steadily growing. Pure continues to support her to access relevant training, including liaising with ACAS on self employment terms and conditions. Asia has been able to pass on this training to her team to ensure they are compliant too.

Thanks to Liz I have been able to overcome my lack of self confidence and embark on my new venture. – She has been there for me to bounce ideas and help me logistically. She has been a godsend!
