Thanks to Our New Partners
We are thrilled to have Bank of America and California Bank and Trust join those who are investing in our Prosperity Project. Their help will enable more low-income area residents to reduce debt, increase savings, improve credit scores, gain self-sufficiency through microenterprise, and become part of the economic mainstream.
Thanks, Deborah Lowe Muramoto for Years of Service
We express our profound gratitude to our longtime board member, Deborah Muramoto, upon her resignation.

Later, as a board member, Deborah assisted us as we expanded our microloan program. Many thanks to you, Debbie.
