    This description of Mauricio Lim Miller's work was prepared when Mauricio Lim Miller was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
    Introduction
    In a novel approach to addressing poverty, Maurice Lim Miller shifts ownership and priority-setting to low-income working families through an approach that enables families to self-organize, support each other as they gain fiscal independence and confidence, and move into roles as active consumers of social services who deliver feedback, not passive beneficiaries.
