Ligia


A loan of $10,000 helped to build an outdoor playground park with games and other activities, as well as to buy tables, chairs, mats, and other necessary elements.


Ligia's story

Ligia and Leonardo, natives of Nicaragua, are the owners of “Chicos Little Explorer, LLC”, a daycare center located in their home in Woodbridge, VA. The couple not only shares the property of the business, but they also work together in the childcare center. After having an accident at work and losing partial vision, Leonardo started to work full-time in the care center helping his wife. Ligia obtained her preschool teacher credentials in Spanish and English while attending Northern Virginia Community College, allowing her to provide a service with an emphasis on bilingual care and teaching.

Ligia and Leonardo are asking for a $10,000 loan to build an outdoor playground park with games and other activities, as well as to buy tables, chairs, mats, and other elements necessary to continue offering quality service and receive more children who are on a long waiting list.

Also, the center needs to build a website, which will allow potential clients to find the center, aid in establishing credibility as a business, and facilitate communication with parents. In addition, the center needs to wrap its transportation vehicle with the company logo and phone number.

Ligia and Leonardo have three kids, and the older daughter is in college in Florida. She is the first in the family going to college.
