This description of Lucia Quachey's work was prepared when Lucia Quachey was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1993.
Lucia Quachey is building an appropriate local model to support rural women's small-scale business start-ups. Her approach is informed by her own considerable success as a business entrepreneur and is highly critical of the usual bureaucratic, exogenous small business support model.
