Yasira Graciela's story
Yasira is a teacher who lives with her family in the municipality of Barranquilla. She works from home, offering support services for preschoolers, elementary and high school students who need special help to meet the goals set for their grade. She began this work when a neighbor in the area requested this service for her son, and with the great results she got, word spread all around the neighborhood of her excellent service. On various days from Monday through Saturday, she attends to children who need help with homework assignments and to strengthen their understanding. The children's families pay monthly or every other week. With the goal of improving the conditions of her business, she is applying for her first loan with the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation to buy tables, chairs and educational materials. Yasira dreams of having a learning center and thinks that her business offers the possibility of demonstrating how good she is at her work. Please support her.
