A Woman palante can be like the mothers who are part of mompreneurs. Women who have children and obligations, but who have not forgotten their dreams. They seek to connect and grow through those goals in order for them and their children to have better opportunities and a better quality of life.

In Women palante there are also the volunteers, women who want to help others and who give their time every day so that other women can fulfill their dreams. These women are hard-working, they work long hours to originate projects, programs and support all the other women in the community. They are also dreamers, because they can see a future in which Latina mothers and women live with wellness, health, and success, and finally they are confident that the only thing a woman needs to succeed is to receive that little “Palante” of confidence and support that can propel them to be the best version of themselves.
