MSBA Student Lends Experience to Peace Corps

''Adrian Sanchez, a 2012 MSBA graduate, is a Community Economic Development Volunteer with the Peace Corps in Paraguay, South America.  The Peace Corps is a federal agency of the U.S. government whose mission is to promote world peace and development by providing qualified volunteers to interested countries in need of trained men and women.  By fostering a better understanding of Americans on the part of the people served, the Peace Corps seeks to make a positive impact around the world."

Adrian's work focuses on one-on-one small business consulting with young entrepreneurs, many of which are agricultural farmers and commercial business owners.  He helps improve their marketing, accounting, finance, and general business management.  He works alongside micro-financing credit union banks where he ensures that small business owners can get appropriate operational loans for their businesses.  Adrian also works on personal finance advising for individual families and youth civic engagement with the local city government.  In addition, as side projects, he teaches Business Management, Leadership and English at universities at his site.
