Sol Nascente I Group's story

Maria, pictured on the left in a gray shirt, is the group leader. She has a candy shop where she sells sweets and snacks. With the Banco do Povo loan, she is going to buy a freezer for ice cream sales. Her dream is to revamp her business to further diversify her products. She is also going to invest in boxed lunches to increase her business volume.

The group has four members and they all have big expectations for growth in their businesses. They all take this opportunity to thank their investors for their trust. Harmiston has a snack and juice stand, Adonias is a hairdresser, and Severino sells bed, bath, and table items.
