Rena is a 21-year-old mother of two. She recently completed the Social Services Day Care Training Course and has been certified to open her day care for this school year. She prepared a place in her home for the child care but needed to develop an outside play area for the children and infants. In Rena's area, there are no other home-based day care centers and one is sorely needed.

Rena needed this loan to create a sandbox play area and to purchase toys, play sets, shelves, cots and other supplies. Rena wants to establish her day care and keep it running professionally while creating a loving environment for the children.
