A loan of $10,000 helped to replace the flooring and fence in the outdoor play area.


Cristina's story

Cristina started her day care business 6 years ago after working at an electronics factory in Fremont for eighteen years. When she suddenly lost her job, she decided to take early-education classes to prepare her for opening a daycare.

Cristina started her daycare business in her living room with a few toys and two children. She now takes care of fourteen children and works hard to stay up-to-date on child care information by regularly attending training. She is thankful that despite the economy, parents are still able to keep their children in her daycare.

Cristina needs $10,000 to replace uneven cement in her outdoor play area to make it safer for the children in her care. She also wants to replace the fence in her backyard. A loan from Opportunity Fund will allow her to do this without placing a burden on her family’s personal finances.

Cristina has been unable to get a loan from a bank in the past and finds it a stressful process. This will be her second loan from Opportunity Fund, and she finds the support of micro-lending services almost too good to be true.
