Determinados Ii Group's story

Elisangela is the group's leader. She is the third one in the photo, in the pink t-shirt. She is married and has two children. They live in a very humble community. Unfortunately, her husband is unemployed and depends solely on her for the family's support.

She has a small market. She's well-known in the community. Her dream is to be able to expand her business. She has been a Banco do Povo client for over eight years, and throughout those years she has been investing in supplying her inventory and making improvements on her endeavor. The loan will be to buy supplies, rice, beans, and sugar.

The group is made up of five members with a variety of occupations. They are grateful to the investors as their families' support depends on their work. Through it they are able to improve both themselves and their quality of life.
