"My hope is, through this program, to purchase a house which my growing family and I can call a home."

My name is Mulugeta Mekuria, born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I came to the USA in May of 2004 seeking better work opportunities. I have been working at Rite Aid since April 2005. This job has made me independent and has enabled me to lead a decent life. In January 2012, I married my wife, Sara Shiferaw, in Ethiopia. She was able to join me in the USA in June 2013. Sara has been working since October 2013.
