Rochelle's story

Rochelle is a 44 year-old mother of 3. She runs a daycare center assisted by her husband who has a transport business ferrying children to and from school. She has been running the center for 8 years now and has been successful in establishing a good reputation. She is requesting for a Kiva loan to buy a deep freezer, a stove, several mattresses and educational toys. All of these purchases will upgrade the center and provide more comfort for the children."Our neighborhood is known for a lot of crime and violence. My wish is to provide hope to the kids by giving them a brighter future than the one they see in the streets" says Rochelle about her passion and drive. She is ambitious and hopes to one day, expand the center into a private primary school giving quality education to children from impoverished and unstable families.
