As an initial investment, Thrive Detroit Street Paper provides Vendors/Micro-preneurs with an initial batch of papers (up to 10 issues) at no charge.   They are then able to sell the issues for $1 each and reinvest some or all of the funds back into their enterprise by purchasing additional papers (stock) for .25 each.

Those who choose to become regular Vendors/Micro-preneurs purchase the paper for .25 each, sell them for $1 each, and retain .75 for themselves.

A micro-enterprise can be the difference between an individual or family remaining housed or becoming homeless.   Individuals already facing homelessness, can use funds to secure housing.

Selling just 30 issues a day, 6 days a week will gross $720 a month, netting $540 a month in income if the Micro-preneur
