Lidia is a young and dynamic entrepreneur from the Dominican Republic and has been working hard ever since arriving in the United States to be a productive citizen. Before moving she gathered a wealth of experience in childcare and looked to put this experience towards her ultimate goal of running her own business.
Currently, she is the owner of a group family daycare facility in the Grand Concourse area of the Bronx. She gets most of her referrals through an agency and has a capacity of 14 children at once. She also employs one full-time employee. She is looking for a loan to better prepare for the children at her daycare facility. She would like to purchase new computers, books, and toys for the children to use while at the facility, and also child-sized furniture to create a more comfortable atmosphere.
