Fellow Since 2015
    This description of Carola Capra's work was prepared when Carola Capra was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
    Introduction
    Carola Capra is forming a parallel system to support small enterprises and street vendors through a network platform called Nueva Empresa, or New Enterprise. The community offers these subsistence entrepreneurs a scholarship to enroll in training programs which lead to a diploma and access to microcredit financing through existing financial institutions, and will ultimately create a LinkedIn type network of buyers, sellers, and support.
