The Project

Many times, legal services programs target the symptoms of poverty, but not the root – economic disadvantage. Through this fellowship, I aim to provide essential tools to those looking to transform their economic circumstances through entrepreneurship. To improve access to credit, I am working launch a new microcredit program from the ground up. To respond to the void in legal assistance for micro entrepreneurs, I provide direct legal services and create opportunities for transactional pro bono.
