“When I think about CentroVilla25, I share that my mom was a natural entrepreneur that cleaned houses and sold food. If she would have had the opportunity to have a space at an affordable price and the tools to help her business grow, our
economic status would’ve been different; we possibly would not have struggled as much. We would have been able to build wealth!”
