Monte Azul Group's story

Ilvanete, the second one in the photo in the blue shirt, is the group leader. She is single and has a son. She came from Northeastern Brazil when she was still young in search of better living conditions. In order to have an income and support her household, she started selling clothing. In the beginning it was very difficult because she didn't have enough capital to buy merchandise, but she managed to stock her business through the Banco do Povo loan. She dreams of opening a large store. The loan will be to buy seasonal clothing, bermuda shorts, tank tops, and dresses.
The Monte Azul group has four members who need their businesses to support their families. They would like to thank the investors for their help.
