Maya has graduated from pedagogical college and works as a teacher at the local nursery school. Unfortunately, a teacher’s salary is very small so Maya decided she should generate additional income.
She requests a loan to renovate a room in her house to start a special education and rehabilitation centre for disabled children there.
Children who have physical, mental and developmental disabilities will be provided with education according to their intellectual level. The center will work on weekends, when other schools are closed.
Maya has experience with disabled children and she can handle this challenge well. Maya loves children very much and hopes her project will be useful for them.
