GUDELIA SAYS: “I have had a great experience with Adelante, I enjoy helping the other women. Since I lost everything before, I understand what it means to suffer, to need to fight, and to overcome.”

MARIA DE JESUS SAYS: “It’s important for me to let my children know that they can have a good future. My parents never gave me this advice, so I always tell them they can do anything with hope and hard work.

SILVIA SAYS: “I have suggested to other women the benefits of working with Adelante. You learn so much. You learn how to manage your loans. If you don’t have the funds you can’t learn how to manage them. You can have good ideas and ambition but until you have the funds you cannot learn how to use them.”
