“When I think about CentroVilla25, I share that my mom was a natural entrepreneur that cleaned houses and sold food. If she would have had the opportunity to have a space at an affordable price and the tools to help her business grow, our economic status would’ve been different; we possibly would not have struggled as much. We would have been able to build wealth!”

– Jasmin Santana

Cleveland City Councilwoman Ward 14 & Majority Whip
