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

Lily's story

I am an immigrant woman originally from El Salvador, and at 28 years old I had to flee with my two daughters because of threats against my life. I settled in the city of Redwood City in California, USA. One of the main challenges was the language, however, my spirit of self-improvement led me to study English as a second language, and without having advanced much in the language. I applied for a job interview as a teacher's assistant in an early childhood education center "My English was very bad, but I got the job". With the desire to continue growing, I went to college and got my degree in early childhood education, and while I was getting my degree I had my vision of opening my daycare center.
