Prospera believes that when women are at the forefront of our local economies, entire communities thrive. 

Prospera is a cooperative business incubator led by and for Latina immigrant entrepreneurs. We provide access to the tools and the financial resources they need to launch and grow their cooperative businesses.

Imagine every month being able to give $5, $10, or more to help these women grow their businesses, without any money coming out of your pocket. If we do this together, it really adds up!

Banks make $90 billion a year from processing our debit and credit card purchases.

What if instead, 1% of your everyday purchases help grow Prospera entrepreneurs, at no cost to you?
