Eida's story

Miss Eida is a hardworking woman. She took care of her five children by herself.

In 2013 when her younger daughter was 6 years old, Miss Eida started with her first business, her small grocery store. As a mother she is always looking for ways to improve her family's lifestyle by starting other sources of income, like selling the bananas that she collects from her land and cooking for the immigrants that arrive in the town.

Actually Miss Eida was the first person that helped the immigrants. She crossed the river on the middle of a big rainstorm with the risk of being punished by the border patrol because it wasn't allowed to help them, and thanks to that action, the other people of the town starting helping too.

Miss Eida has always been a good influence in the community. She helps the women, kids, and immigrants in the area and is always looking for ways to improve the community.
