Diamantes Ii Group's story

Antonio, the second one in the photo, is the group leader. He is single and came from the northeast very young in search of better living conditions. He started working in a spice store, but always had the dream of being able to manage his own business. After a lot of struggle and putting away a financial reserve, he managed to open a small beverage store. He brought his sister from the northeast to live with him and help with the business. The loan will be to buy beverages in general, soft drinks, juices and water.
The group would like to thank the investors, as the loan is helping them improve their businesses and quality of life.
