Inspired by her grandmother, Sharon started her own day care, Louise and Lillian Day Care, in 2005. Taking care of children has always been her passion and, when the opportunity was right, she left her job with the Department of Education to open her day care. In addition to having extensive experience in the education field, Sharon is incredibly warm and loving – a necessary combination for any day care provider. She employs three people to help her care for 16 children, and she has a growing waiting list. Her day care could, however, desperately use new supplies and some basic repairs. With this loan, she will be able to make updates that will allow her to make the day care the place she has always envisioned it to be.
