"I am a single mother of 3 children with a meagre income of Rs.10,000 per month. This is when GIC team approached me and guided me to expand my business further. Not just that, they also provided me a low-interest loan to purchase wheel removal equipment. Due to this, today I am able to earn Rs. 30,000 per month."
"Due to HudHud cyclone, I lost my only shop and livelihood and for many years only lived on the PwD pension. Thankfully, GIC has come to my rescue and offered me a loan of Rs. 1.5 Lakhs with nominal interest and assisted me in setting up my shop again."
"As I was interested in tailoring, I took it up as a profession. GIC has been instrumental in taking my business to the next level, as they supported me with embroidery machine and sewing machine. Anyone can give loans, but at GIC, they handhold us at all stages."
