Thanks to the Huntsman School SEED program who sent interns to Peru, Jesús Esteban Gomez can finally send his kids to college.
Mr. Gomez was loaned enough money to start his own business, a mini-market attached to his home.
Mr. Gomez’s wife, Susanna, runs the mini-mart when Mr. Gomez is at work. She said, “I don’t have words to thank you for the opportunity you have given me, It really changed my life and has given us a new path for me and my family.”
“In spite of having to speak in a different language, the students made a great effort to communicate almost perfectly with us,” Mr. Gomez said. “They are great friends, and we really miss them down here.”
