Galina Borsca, mum of one,  has achieved her dream of running her own lingerie business thanks to a helping hand from Tameside Markets. Galina applied to the Council’s Trade for a Tenner scheme to have a low risk and low cost trial run of a stall on Ashton’s award winning market last September.
 
It's been so succesful she has now moved from her temporary pitch on the outdoor market to open a permanent base for her business ‘LadyDuff Lingerie’ with changing rooms inside the market hall with hopes of expanding further.
 
Galina said: “I was looking for an opportunity to get started with my own business selling high quality lingerie at low prices and I fell in love with Ashton Market right away. It is an attractive setting and has a caring and friendly atmosphere and importantly offered the Trade for a Tenner scheme which gave me the opportunity to trial my idea without huge start up costs.
 
“Straight away I received a lot of interest in my products, people like them and I have quickly built up regular customers. It has been such a success that I have now been able to open a permanent stall in the market hall which is a dream come true for me. Who knows now what is possible with the business if I have achieved this is such a short space of time  I would like to eventually open up a number of shops in different town centres.”
