At Univision, we recognized how much our Hispanic community could benefit from the chance to understand the complicated inner workings of personal finances and professional entrepreneurship — so we teamed up with the U.S. Small Business Administration to lay the groundwork for U.S. Hispanic financial success. Our Prosperity initiative promotes financial literacy, building assets, and celebrating and advancing our inherent entrepreneurial spirit.
Through a series of informative events, families across the country learned to set goals, manage finances, rely less on loans, save money, protect themselves from debt, and understand helpful services from financial institutions. They’re on their way to achieving the dreams they came here for — one step at a time.
