A loan helped to buy a freezer for selling ice creams and acaí.

Andorinhas Group's story

The group leader is Marli. She is the one in the sunflower shirt in the photo. She has a bar and grocery store in the community where she lives, and she works nights as a cook at a hospital to complement her income. With the loan, she will buy a freezer for selling ice creams and acaí, to increase her working capital since summer is on the way.

The group is made up of four people, and they all thank their investors for their trust. Gislaine sells cosmetics, Adna sells cleaning products, and Edy is a bricklayer.
