Nadia is 38 years old and is married with four children: two boys aged 9 and 11 years old and two girls aged 6 and 5 years old.
Nadia started her kindergarten a few years ago. She thought of having a small kindergarten for children below 4 years old since her husband is not working on a permanent basis. The kindergarten started with only one room and a small kitchenette and reception and only four infants. Currently she has a good apartment with twenty-two children. The kindergarten is under the supervision of the Ministry of Health and is officially registered. The kindergarten is the main source of income for the family.
Nadia needs $3,000 to buy new beds for the children, new toys, and to renovate the kindergarten during summer since during summer she closes it for one month for renovation.
Nadia’s husband helps her in the kindergarten. He buys groceries and other stuff in addition to taking some children home to their families.
