This description of Antonio Paz Martinez's work was prepared when Antonio Paz Martinez was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1999.
Antonio Paz Martinez has built a remarkable community organization out of the wreckage wrought by the 1985 earthquake in poor neighborhoods of central Mexico City. He's now spreading its ideas and adding a vertically and horizontally integrated economic machine built up from small back veranda "informal sector" neighborhood producers.
