This profile was prepared when Enny Soekoer was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1986.
The New Idea
Enny as a young and committed public entrepreneur is perhaps a greatest asset of her own project. Though the project only started one year ago, it is certain a multitude of poor Indonesians are going to benefit from it. In the long run, the pioneering model Enny is trying to establish might spread to other parts of the country as a viable solution to the chronic housing problem.
