- Date: Oct 13, 2015
- Time: 6:30pm
- Location: The Fort Garry Hotel - 222 Broadway in Winnipeg, Manitoba
Keynote Speaker Juan Ulloa, Executive Director, ASODENIC
Nicaragua continues to struggle as one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Into this challenging environment, Opportunity International Canada and Opportunity’s Implementing Partner ASODENIC brings hope. Juan Ulloa, Executive Director of ASODENIC has been engaged with Opportunity International’s mission for nearly eighteen years, but his banking experience in Nicaragua began in 1978.
A banker-turned practitioner, Juan has successfully combined his marketplace skills, theological and university training. His leadership has empowered thousands of Nicaraguan entrepreneurs to work their way out of chronic poverty, resulting in transformation of families and communities. For Juan, this work is more than economic relief — it is the embodiment of the good news for the poor.
These are exciting days for Opportunity International Canada as we blaze new trails in Nicaragua, and all of Latin America. Please plan now to join us as we welcome our distinguished colleague Juan Ulloa to Canada.
