One of the most prominent groups of people who have made their presence known in the nation comes from Latin America. 

Let’s be honest — the opportunities that people can access in the United States are not all the same. Some are given more than others, and this is the reality of life. 

However, there are several women who have boldly cemented their legacy despite their simple upbringing. Let’s take a look at some of the richest and most inspiring self-made Latina women in the USA.
