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 i will be able to help my two brothers in one to finalize his exam that costs 150 dollars and the other in doing a short course that costs 260dollars.I will manage to save up for the balance from my small business and video coverage.I will be so grateful in that I cannot manage to pay the full amount of fees needed and I know in the end when getting this loan my brothers will be happy because of the exam fee and the short course that will be done without distractions hence I will be happy to.

    I am not able to complete my loan on the due date stated hence would like it to reduce reason being held up in small commitments but I am willing to complete the loan early next year given a chance.The loan has really helped me and am willing to complete it since my brother managed to sit for his exam.I am waiting up on some small businesses I have done during the holidays and I expect to finish the loan in good time.
