Adela's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped us upgrade our equipment along with hiring an employee.

Adela's story

When I came to this country more than 10 years ago, I worked many jobs to support my family financially. But, being the nurturing mother I am, taking care of small children became my passion. Therefore, after many years of hard work and commitment, and under the guidance of Centro Community Partners, I was able to open my own daycare/preschool. My family’s well-being gives me the motivation to not give up on my dreams of being a business owner. However, knowing that my business contributes to the economy of my community brings me great satisfaction. But most importantly, over the years, I have had the great pleasure of caring for wonderful babies and their families who are now great friends and family.
