Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2014
This description of Floralicia Anzola's work was prepared when Floralicia Anzola was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2014.
Floralicia Anzola is countering a culture of polarization and powerlessness in Venezuela by finding, publicizing, and strengthening the work of everyday entrepreneurs. Her organization, 0800-Flor, features entrepreneurs on the radio and online, then pulls together allies to support their ventures. By showing her audience examples of action, Floralicia is moving them from an attitude of "I wait" to "I do."
