Meet Maria

Maria joined The Millin Charity in February 2020 with aspirations to set up her own vegan Portuguese Food Business.

Through accessing services at The Millin Charity, Maria was able to receive support from a team of speciliast advisors to create an action plan to help her to develop her business ideas and start running her own business.  

“I’m very grateful for the support from The Millin Charity. I have had continuous advice & guidance from The staff team & advisors and I now have a plan in place and feel like I’m on my way.

I have made great progress since joining the project, starting by developing my online presence and was launching my business from home.  I now have my own Café in Wallsend; Vegan by Goreti. 

I can’t believe that I am running my own business. I have finally achieved my goal, and I cant put into words how it makes me feel, its just amazing! I couldn’t have done it if this support had not been available.”
