About Me

Gabriela is a freelance filmmaker,businesswoman,an employee in a fashion company in Nairobi,Kenya.I did a course in Film technology and got exposure through working in various production houses in Nairobi.
I also involved myself in voluntary work in Kibera which enabled me to know my childhood home very well and got exposed to the day to day life.
This is how I came to see a need in my community hence started a water business which has been a joy to the people in my community.
I live in Kibera where I ventured in to business.I believe that it is worth developing a community if we care.
My hobbies are writing poems,reading novels and watching movies.My free time is dedicated to family and friends whom we share business ideas.

My Business

My source of income comes from video coverage on a freelance level whereby I do events such as weddings,school clubs ,official functions in organisations,selling water and a car wash business well.

Loan Proposal

When I get this loan,it will help me buy water supplies such as water pipes,gate valves that cost 60 dollars and more cement,sand for a small renovation of the shower room at 40 dollars,hiring construction equipment at 22 dollars and a new pump for 18dollars.The loan will enable me to make a better place for my customers; improve sanitation and increase my returns through the shower usage.I would be grateful to get help from you since I cannot be able to afford the money for the renovation to be a success.Thank you.
