A loan helped fund the start-up costs for my home healthcare agency.

Chanelle's story

I’m from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania as a little girl I alway had a passion to help others from children to adults. Assisting others , becoming a helping hand, allowed me to become a fast learner and achieve the skills necessary to become a successful caregiver. From experience working with clients and family, learning that helping elderly was my passion because, the position comes naturally. Providing loving care and reassurance, I decided to start my own home healthcare agency to provide the appropriate care needed for family members and clients on a daily basis. Identifying what needs to be changed in this field, and how my company can make a difference. I’m currently the Owner of Royalty Home Care Services,LLC. My goal is to provide the best healthcare to my community and also provide services in different states around the world. I found my purpose in the home health care field.
