This description of Brenda Araque's work was prepared when Brenda Araque was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1997.
In a semi-urban area on the outskirts of Santiago, Brenda Araque is helping particularly disadvantaged women launch micro-enterprises that will benefit themselves, their families, and the larger community. The centerpiece of her undertaking is a revolving loan fund, but Brenda and her associates place special emphasis on training and counseling services that respond to the special needs of the program's participants and help assure the success of the new enterprises.
