My name is Dora Elsa, I am 54 years old and I was born in a small and humble town in Colombia.
As everyone knows Colombia is a beautiful country but extremely poor, it was for that reason that after living and experiencing many difficulties I was forced to emigrate from my country and to be able to get a new life opportunity for myself, my mother and my two precious children .
11 years ago I left my country with the hope of working to be able to return and reunite with my family, and although I have worked every day I find it more impossible to return to my country. When I left my country my children were small children, my girl was 7 years old and my son 8 and a half. My two children are now older, my girl is 20 years old, my eldest son is 22, and my mother is 75 years old, I long for to be able to see them again and give them economic and emotional stability.
I am a head of the family mother, and I fight and work every day to earn some money and send my children, I currently work in London as a domestic worker, I know there are millions of mothers who live this situation but by my advanced age Every day it is more difficult to get a job besides I have two herniated discs on my back which prevents me from making many physical efforts and keeps me in constant pain, which I can no longer bear, plus I suffer from constant depressions.
My only wish is to be able to return and be with my family, we are 12000 kilometers away and I have been away from them for 12 years. Our economic situation in Colombia is really difficult, there are no jobs or if there are jobs, education is required that I can not give my children.
My objective of crownfounding is not to make money, it is to have the opportunity to be together with my family and have my own business. I have been caring for many people abroad for many years and I know that in Colombia there is a great need, I have experience and I would like to build one or two cabins and take care of people who can not take care of themselves, and offer them an economic but efficient service that besides to provide me with a source of employment, to be with my loved ones, would also help them.
