Nov 8 2013, 10:14am CST | by PR.com

Local Business, Loquendi Needs Support to be Eligible for $250,000 Grant from Mission Main StreetSM Grants.

New York, NY, November 08, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Help Loquendi Grow by Voting Online Before November 15.

Loquendi, a local online shoe retailer has applied for a $250,000 grant from Chase as part of a newly launched program, Mission Main StreetSM Grants. Loquendi must submit a questionnaire outlining a business plan that will result in growth of the business and receive at least 250 votes to be eligible for a grant. Through Mission Main Street Grants, Chase will award $3 million to small business across America. All businesses that apply for a grant and meet the eligibility requirements will receive a special advertising offer from Premier Sponsor, Google. In addition, the 12 grant recipients will be eligible to receive a trip to Google for an exclusive small business marketing workshop with Google experts and a Google Chromebook Pixel laptop.

The 12 grant recipients will be announced in January 2014.

Consumers and community members can show support by voting for Loquendi at www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/business/detail/101450 using Facebook Connect before the voting deadline on November 15, 2013.

“$250,000 grant to Loquendi means more artists employed, more art produced and appreciated. With $250,000, we will apply a two-fold strategy for our products. First – invest in our artists and increase production. And second – invest in our brand and awareness of our product. Production costs will go towards producing qualitative quantity, distribution, and hiring talent. We will also invest in high quality raw materials that can be bought cheaper in wholesale. We will distribute the branding and awareness budget between trade shows and online marketing. While trade shows will help us reach our core audience and build momentum for our product by opening up retail partnership opportunities, online marketing will bring Loquendi in front of audience already searching for niche products. It will also help us in gaining a competitive edge, establishing awareness, and ultimately winning loyal customers in a highly competitive industry,” said Business Owner, June Dhar.

About Loquendi
Inspired by the Latin word for "Expression", Loquendi shoes is a chic, trendy and elegant but fun line, allowing modern women to express themselves through varying array of designs, colors and styles. Moreover, Loquendi strives to minimize impact on the environment while creating their products. 'Style shouldn’t cost us our environment.'

Focusing on individuality coupled with timeless elegance, Loquendi strives to be at the forefront of the ever-changing women's footwear industry. Our adept craftsmen meticulously handcraft the shoes, delivering superior quality and exceptional service.

India is a mysterious country of endless art and culture, a wide portion of which is still unexplored especially in relation to fashion - both outside of India and within. Loquendi strives to do just that, integrate traditional Indian embroidery into everyday fashion. Hand embroidery in India is of superior quality and can be made cost effectively. There are dozens of regional embroidery styles that vary by region.

The most ornate and tedious form of Indian embroidery is the Zardosi workmanship. Another form of embroidery from India is the Ari work, which is done by stretching the fabric on a frame and stitching with a long needle, which also holds sequins, beads, and other embellishments. Ari work is currently utilized on Loquendi shoes, however the vision is to utilize other regional embroidery styles and implement on footwear.
