Thanks from Paleta Co-op Founders
Thanks to our generous donor family, we exceeded our campaign goal of reaching 125 year-end contributors! Over 180 incredible change-makers supported our campaign and helped unlock an additional $10,000 from Chevron. We are so grateful and inspired by our community’s investment in real, local prosperity.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to our partners at Chevron, who amplified the impact of donors’ contributions by committing an additional $10,000 Challenge Grant to the campaign.
These contributions will give more low-income, Latina leaders the opportunity to create a cooperative business and build prosperity in 2015 and beyond.
Words aren’t enough, so we made a video to express our gratitude.
Watch Cecilita, Ana, and Flor, three founding members of a new paleta co-op, explain what this opportunity means to them:
I want to thank the people that provide us with financial support, moral support, and all kinds of other resources so women like us can realize our dreams of owning our own businesses.
– Flor, graduate of Prospera’s co-op business owner training program
Thank you for changing what’s possible for low-income, Latina entrepreneurs. Without you, these opportunities wouldn’t exist.
