    This description of Alice Freitas's work was prepared when Alice Freitas was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
    Alice Freitas has created a direct sales catalog to help informal artisans overcome the challenges of large-scale distribution. By equipping a team of well-trained sales agents with an intimate understanding of the personal histories and social impact behind the products, Alice enables consumers to exercise informed decision-making, and provides a direct communication channel between producers and consumers.
