"My research will be exploring the access to finance for small and medium cooperatives, including the use of microfinance (traditionally "micro" loans to poor people, as small as $10) for financial and social inclusion," Shashoua said.

"On the microfinance front, I will also be working with the Spanish government to create efficient legislation and best practices for microfinance institutions. The goal is to supplement the power of microfinance in developed countries and establish microfinance as a tool against the severe economic situation in Spain."

The Fulbright Grant provides a full year of paid research for Shashoua, who will be working with host affiliations Autonomous University of Madrid and FICO, the official credit agency of Spain.
