"The lack of available credit to small businesses in Latin America was one of the big findings of my senior thesis. After graduating, I worked for 6 years for Root Capital helping provide access to credit to agricultural businesses (mainly coffee producers) in developing countries. I now run a cafe that supports those same farmers by buying their products. My Political Science degree was my inspiration for getting involved."

"I own and operate a small cafe at Boston's Innovation and Design Center"
