Faces of Empowerment – Education Has No Age Limit

“I consider myself a dreamer. I was widowed nine years ago. I was left alone with two daughters and pregnant with my son when my husband died. I think that now, with my loans, I will have a better future. I have the goal to be educated as a professional too. With my loans, with my growing business, and after my children become professionals, they will help me. Even though I didn’t get my degree as a young person, there is no age limitation to becoming educated.  That’s what I believe, and that’s what I’m going to do.” -Doña Juana, Friendship Bridge Client
