About this grant

This grant will allow the Aspen Institute to continue to conduct research on innovation that represents a potential solution to the challenge of sustainability for domestic microenterprise programs — a new business model in which microenterprise programming is embedded within a university setting and uses volunteer student resources that significantly lower the cost of service delivery.
