“I wanted to provide a higher standard of dog boarding kennels that what was on offer locally plus further afield. I quickly realised that to do it properly and on the scale that I wanted, I would need outside help. I approached Dublin Rural LEADER and they listened to my ideas. They invited me to submit an Expression of Interest, which was approved. Dublin Rural LEADER were very helpful in guiding me through the process. I submitted a detailed business plan and filled out all the forms to apply for the grant. When my grant application was approved, I was delighted. It meant I could plan and make a start on my project. Being accepted for LEADER funding meant that I could proceed with my plans on a grander scale than if I did not have funding. My experience with Dublin Rural LEADER is a positive one. I received excellent guidance and I am really pleased with my completed project. This has given me a viable business to work in and an opportunity to grow it as a family business. Thank you to all Dublin Rural LEADER staff.”
