NEW Phodographer Maia Pelleg in Ghana, April 2010

Maia Pelleg, now a first year law student at Duke University, enthusiastically embraced Dog Meets World while volunteering as a Kiva Fellow in Ghana last spring. This picture is of Elizabeth a leader of her community microfinance group. She operates a small market kiosk from which she sells paint. Elizabeth is 65-years-old and continues to provide for her family, including her grandchildren’s school fees. She was thrilled to have this picture. Dog Meets World honors all the workers of the world.
