Jazmín Elizabeth's story

Jazz is a 27-year-old returned migrant from the US now living in Mexico. She is the mother of two kids. Jazz was taken to the US when she was one year old and moved back and forth between the US and Mexico, leaving part of her family in the States.

She is a hardworking and ambitious young woman who was recognized by her tech mentors as the top programmer in her class. Five months ago, she enrolled in Hola, a social enterprise and programming bootcamp that works with refugees, deported, and returned migrants from the US to train them and help them secure a career path in Mexico. This training provides an opportunity to access technology education needed to become a skillful programmer and role model for her two young kids.

Today, Jazz is seeking a loan to pay for her Hola tuition in order to help more women and mothers start their careers in tech. This loan will be used to invest in another student until she finds a job in technology. This education immediately improved Jazz’s family living conditions, allowing her to have a better future for herself and her family on this side of the border.
