A loan of $10,000 helped to launch her own daycare.

Aurea's story

Aurea is originally from Peru and has been living in the States for the past 12 years. She has 30 years of experience in the daycare sector.

Aurea has been working to launch her own daycare for the past year. She has a location in the neighborhood of Columbia Heights in Washington, DC. The location was previously a hair salon and now is completely renovated to be a daycare.

The loan will help Aurea to cover the remaining project costs, such as purchasing cribs, furniture, toys, etc. to allow Aurea to open the doors to her daycare.

Aurea will begin her daycare with 5 children and hopes in the future to operate at full capacity, which is 18 children.
