Vamos Evoluir Group's story

Henrique is the group leader; he had a small candy store that wasn't earning a lot, only losing money, so he decided to open a packaging store. Today he is very happy and grateful for his great success, which is his sole source of support for his family. He is very hardworking. The loan will be to buy packaging in general, little boxes and bags for storage. In order to spend more time with her daughter, Regina decided to open a salon and be a hair stylist. Jose works selling gas canisters, Maria Auxiliadora works selling cosmetics and clothing, and Alcione works selling cosmetics and underwear.
The group is renewing its loan with new members and would like to thank the investors, as the loan has helped them improve their businesses and quality of life.
