Aida Patricia is the founder of Oscaritos, a textile business that she started in Nicaragua in 1996 with only 100 dollars from a microfinance loan. In November 2013, Aida completed the repayment of a debt investment from Pomona Impact, an angel investment group founded in 2011.

“This investment has really helped us to grow, in fact we doubled our sales this year.”


2014 McNulty Fellows

Alicia Kozuch, founder of Buen Power (Peru), Ana Barrera, founder of Aflore (Colombia), and Sophie Eckrich, founder of Teysha (Guatemala) are harnessing the power of business to electrify remote rural communities, build trust in often uncertain financial systems, and create a direct connection between artisans and customers – all while making a profit and shifting the way their respective industries view success.


Maya Mountain Cacao

Emily Stone founded Maya Mountain Cacao (MMC) in 2010 alongside Gabriel Pop, an indigenous Mayan cacao farmer. Their mission is to source high-quality cacao from smallholder farmers for fine chocolate makers, leveraging direct relationships and constant innovation to shorten supply chains and catalyze impact.

“It’s really important for business success to be holistic and inclusive. Without an authentic grassroots embrace of the vision, our business wouldn’t work.”
