Jennifer Lopez is looking back at her journey during a recent visit to her hometown in the Bronx, meeting with Latina entrepreneurs from her Limitless Labs Grameen American program, who have benefited from JLo’s partnership with Grameen America to help businesswomen achieve their dreams.
The actress met with 20 Latina entrepreneurs, including Bella Shique owner Lissette, and shared her experience after listening to the challenges and successes of the women at the special event.
“It’s always inspiring to come back here and see what we’re doing together and how people are getting the opportunity to do and show what they can do with their lives. That to me is the biggest, most beautiful thing that you’re affording all of us to have,”
Jennifer also highlighted the importance of receiving support and being able to fund a business. “It is a life-changing thing,” she explained. “That obviously hits very close to home. Not just because of what I do but because I was raised by strong Latina women. I know my grandmother would have loved to have her own shop, she was a seamstress, she made beautiful clothes.”
