Sandy Cantu has always enjoyed sharing her passion for books and learning, but she was disappointed in the number of quality daycare options available in her Corpus Christi neighborhood. In 1995, Sandy opened Storybooks School from her home as a safe, high-quality educational environment for children.
“I’ve developed a strong program,” Sandy said. “My goal is to let children be children while also providing them the tools to become the best they can be.”
In 2012, Sandy was referred to LiftFund to help her business expand from a home-based business to a commercial space. Sandy returned to LiftFund in 2016 for another loan to build a playground and update the air condition units.
Through LiftFund’s capital, Sandy was able to provide more children the opportunity to learn with her care. With the funding, Sandy has seen her business grow from 14 children to 114 children, from infancy to five years.
“We needed funding and equipment,” Sandy said. “Having LiftFund there was crucial for us to get our doors open, take that next step and keep going.”
