Valerie's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped me to obtain the necessary equipment and furniture to operate my business soon.
I'm Valerie, a professional, licensed, and collegiate of Social Work in Puerto Rico. From 2014 to 2019 I had the opportunity to work in the administrative field and the experience of supervising and coordinating the Food Program for needy minors, known as; "La Mochila Alegre" and the Puerto Rico Food Bank Volunteer Program. After this, in 2019, I had the opportunity to direct the Volunteer and AmeriCorps Program through the Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico organization. Experiences that formed, disciplined, and trained me as a person and as a professional. In the wake of the pandemic in 2020, I am left without a job. This made me a resilient woman, of today to be able to make the most important and profound decision in my life, to present my business plan. With the mission of growing in the business world, having economic autonomy, and continuing to help the young people of my country with the vision of contributing to the personal and professional development of our youth, as well as contributing to the local economy and tourism in my hometown Isabela, Puerto Rico.
