An Ariva Client Feature

“It’s my dream to open my own daycare. I love kids,” says Nicole.

An entrepreneur at heart, Nicole dreams of opening her own daycare center in the Bronx. With decades of career experience in childcare development, four children, and three grandchildren, she is more than qualified. The only part holding her back from taking the leap to open the doors is her finances.

We are so glad she received assistance from our financial counselors and the Small Business Program.

“I felt like I was drowning, and I didn’t know how to get out of the situation. Ariva’s team took the time to explain everything to me, like how to save, how much to save, and where my credit score needs to be,” Nicole explains.

She feels closer to launching her daycare today because of her financial planning work and the financial empowerment she is experiencing as a result.

“Ariva can help me open up my businesses, whereas before, doors were closed,” Nicole explains.
