A Poor Young Lady Became A Boss

This is a young lady of 28 years old, she completed her studies but had suffered a lot since she finished her course in a certain college. She tried to look for jobs but couldn't find one. As she was about to give up, she met a man who was talking about the organisation that helps the needy, so she also gave in the request and it was granted. The organisation bought everything she wanted to start a saloon (because she wanted saloon) and she now working and things are moving on well with her.
