A loan of $6,850 helped to renovate her patio to grow her child care business.


Carmen's story

Carmen is originally from Peru and has lived in the States for twenty years. A couple of years ago, Carmen realized how much she enjoyed child care when she began taking care of her grandchildren. From this experience, Carmen formally launched her own child care business--Nana's & Papa's nest--in 2010.

Carmen operates her business from her home in Virginia. She would like to apply for a new license to increase the number of children that can be under her care from five children to eight children. In order to do so, she must expand the physical amount of space of her day care center. Carmen’s house has an interior patio, which needs to be renovated in order to meet the requests of the County. Carmen takes pride in giving loving care to the children, as if they were her own grandchildren.
