Client Success Story
Congratulations Ana Hernandez for successfully completing your first round of Dollar a Day Savings!  Ana saved $600 over the course of 6 months, which was matched 100% by WHP.  She is so proud of her success that she has signed up for another 6 months with a goal of saving enough money to buy a car.  Ana shares that her motivation is 100% her son and that she hopes this car will one day be passed along to him when he's ready to drive.

Keep up the great work Ana, we are so proud of you!
