Delphia chose to open this business because of her experience working with the homeless and at-risk population and her passion for poverty reduction. Although her business is home-based for now and relies on volunteers, she believes the business will give the homeless an entrepreneurial mindset and have many positive impacts for the homeless population in the city.
With this loan from ACCION USA, Delphia will be able to print more newspapers for her flourishing business.
