Vika's story

With her business, Island You a Hand, Vika hires out in-home caretakers, providing companionship for the elderly. With her diverse and multilingual team of caretakers, which includes Chinese, Russian, Spanish, and other foreign language speakers, she is able to provide a high quality of service. Vika founded the company in January 2009 with her own savings and a deep commitment to her work. With a background in sales, Vika approaches her business as an aggressive start-up. She has developed relationships with local assisted care facilities, and regularly gives talks at churches in the area to reach out to people directly. Vika sees an opportunity to expand into more technical medical care services, but will need to be certified by the State of California.

This loan will help Vika acquire certification and hire qualified nurses for more technically demanding client placements.
