The Project

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