TAMPA, August 4, 2015— Project Prosper aims to enhance the lives of working immigrants and refugees through financial education and experiential learning programs. Tampa residents will have the opportunity to “pay it forward” and hear a few success stories from participants in Project Prosper on August 20 from 6:00-7:30 pm at Avila Country Club.
Project Prosper provides a helping hand to recent working immigrants so that they may fully participate in the economic life of the community. Project Prosper empowers loan recipients by offering financial assistance for a variety of meaningful causes-professional development, obtaining citizenship or permanent residency, a down payment on a vehicle to get to-and-from work, etc. by providing micro loans accompanied with financial literacy class and matched savings.
John Garcia, President and CEO of World Wide Medical Services, Inc. is deeply inspired by the mission and work of Project Prosper. Garcia believes that Project Prosper provides a helping hand to immigrants and refugees so that they may take charge of their own destiny through hard work and education. “I am honored to be involved with Project Prosper. The organization is truly making a positive impact in the lives of the immigrants and refugees it empowers,” said Garcia. “As a child, my family received a $1,500 loan that drastically transformed our lives for the better.”
Join Garcia and the folks from Project Prosper for complimentary hors d’oeuvres and libations on August 20 from 6:00-7:30 pm at Avila Country Club. There is no cost to attend the event; however, Garcia asks that if you are inspired by the testimonials that you donate to this incredible organization. Please RSVP to Rose Stowers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 813-452-3209 no later than August 14. If invitees cannot attend, donations can be made payable to Project Prosper and be mailed to Project Prosper, 10300 49th Street North, Suite 403, Clearwater, Florida 33762.

About Project Prosper
Project Prosper is a grass roots organization founded in Tampa Bay in 2007 by Robin Warren and Ann Haendel. The organization’s inception was motivated by the lack of financial education and experiential learning programs targeting immigrants and refugees in the Tampa Bay community. Project Prosper prepares working immigrants to become fully involved in the economic life of the community through financial literacy classes, small loans, matched savings, and mentoring.
