Hi, I'm Mamta

My family lived for many years in a refugee camp in Nepal before moving to California.

When we got here, I learned to drive, shop at the grocery store, and I started working at Threads Beauty Bar and Spa. Opportunity Fund lent the owners, Mitesh and Chetna, money to start the business, and now they are showing me kindness as I learn to run the business. They sent me to nighttime English class, and last year I was promoted to manager!

Now, I oversee 23 employees at a very busy salon, and I am proud of my success. After saving for many years, my husband and I just bought a home.
My job helps me feel stable, hopeful, and like I am part of my community.

Will you support Opportunity Fund to help create more jobs like mine?
