A group in the Netherlands called XS2Justice Foundation has been working for years to develop a special business model for third world countries to improve access to justice. Part of that business model includes a tool to finance legal services for the poor -- about 4 billion people worldwide cannot rely on the law for protection, and more than 80 percent of property and people remain unregistered, according to the foundation.

Van Rooij, founder and chairman of XS2Justice Foundation. “An out-of-the-box, sustainable and scalable solution is needed.”
