Let's Celebrate our Favorite Moms - Happy Mother's Day!

Posted on May 11, 2018 by

Happy Mothers Day

This Mother's Day, we celebrate all of the mothers in the Opportunity Fund community. They are not just entrepreneurs, employees, donors, and staff, but also doing so much to support their families.

Some of the most incredible mothers are our clients, who run a household while also running a small business. They come to Opportunity Fund for help growing their businesses, becoming financially independent, and providing opportunities for others. But most importantly, they are also transforming the lives of their children through their hard work and example.

When you invest in a woman entrepreneur, you also invest in her family. For every $1 a woman earns, she puts 80 cents towards her family. 

Meet Rosa, owner of Loving Daycare and mother to four children
Rosa came to America from El Salvador with a dream to make a better life for herself and her children. She worked as a housekeeper while taking night classes at UCLA Extension and learning English—all with the goal of building her own daycare business.

In 2010, she moved into a new home and started Loving Day Care. With three loans from Opportunity Fund, Rosa was able to transform her house into a safe, fun daycare for 14 children, plus her own four children.

With a successful daycare, Rosa realized her dream of supporting her children and the children in her community. But it doesn't stop there: Rosa hopes to grow the daycare into a dance studio where her three daughters can teach free dance lessons for children in the neighborhood."I am very thankful for Opportunity Fund. They are helping me give my kids a better life."

Mothers make it happen, every day. Let’s make it happen for them on Mother’s Day.
