“Changing is hard. Learning to do things differently can be challenging,” says Bernique. "What we are offering is an on-going support and accountability system, so those who really want to make a financial contribution to their families and communities can learn to do so and learn to do it along with others who are just like them and have similar goals."

"Together people will succeed at doing what separately they could never accomplish."
