Gianella Vanessa's story

Gianella lives in Playas, and she is 26 years old. She started her business 7 years ago, when she started up a small business with a loan from relatives. She's been gradually increasing her sales, and now she has lots of customers in her clothing business.

Gianella gets up at 6am to take her children to school, and from there she goes out with her merchandise. She has not had any problems with her work, and with the help of God she is making progress with the business each day. She is not married; she is the single mother of 2 children, aged 6 and 5, who attend public school.

With this loan, Gianella will buy sheets, comforters, and a glass display case for the clothing she sells. In the future, she wants her children to get a university degree and become professionals. In this way, all of her efforts will not be in vain.
