Eduardo's story

Eduardo is a 21-year old, born in Mexico City and raised in California. His family decided to move to Lodi, California, when he was 12 years old in order to pursue better opportunities for the family. After some years living in the United States, his mother decided to come back to Mexico with her family due to the recent immigration policies. In Mexico, Eduardo attended a private college to study graphic design, but his family was not able to afford the school and, therefore, he had to quit. In order to help his family, he started a job at a call center working 12 hours a day for very low wages.

Then, Eduardo found Hola, a programming bootcamp and social enterprise aiming at refugees, deported and returned migrants from the U.S. Their main goal is to teach computer coding skills and to aid the students in securing a job in the tech sector.

Now, Eduardo is looking for a loan to pay for his Hola tuition. This will be used to invest in a new student, because Eduardo is keen on helping future generations coming back from the U.S. Hola’s education greatly improved Eduardo’s future possibilities, increasing his monthly income by four times.
