24. Similarly, you can't say that while the process is difficult, it's impossible
and that the dream is unattainable.

I don't know what total percentage of immigrants fit your earnings criteria. What I can tell you is that 80% of our clients are of modest means. We've had success stories working with clients who were initially running push carts and setting up stalls in markets. They became successful enough to move into storefronts. For a lot of these clients, they are working multiple jobs and these businesses supplement that income.
