Alexander Sinclair first traveled to Guatemala in the summer of 2007. This trip precipitated two theses, one in Spanish, about tourism in Guatemala for his bachelor’s degree from Roger Williams University. He later returned while studying micro-credit at Westfield State University. His Master’s thesis was used to earn a grant from the university to fund the MicroLending program at LWH. Alexander returns twice each year to select new borrowers for this program. Stateside, Alexander is a stay-at-home father to Sandy. He and his wife, Dr. Stephanie, took her on a medical trip to Long Way Home’s campus in Comalapa when she was seven months old.
