Jean has always been a caretaker by nature. By being a teacher and daycare employee for many years, Jean has become a mother, in her own right, to every child she cares for and educates. She is well respected in her community for this very reason. Jean knows her community is in need of a daycare with extended hours for hard-working parents.

Once this need was identified, Jean knew she wanted to be the one to create the solution. The only thing stopping her from opening her own childcare center was the lack of access to capital. It is for exactly this reason that Jean requested a loan. With this loan, Jean can buy furniture for her daycare. With the presence of her daycare, more children will have caretakers when their parents are working, and will be educated by a sharp woman at the same time. In the future, she hopes to expand and employ more caretakers just as passionate as she is.
