Todos Vencedores Group's story

The leader of the group is Maria Gorete. She is the third person shown in the photo. She is married and has four children.

To be able to help her husband with the household expenses, she worked as a seamstress in a factory. Then, in order to be closer to her children, she decided to work self-employed by selling remnants and fabrics to clothing manufacturers.

She is very hardworking and a fighter, always working hard for the wellbeing of her children. And now she wants to continue in the struggle to have a stable financial life and to be able to enjoy her old age. The loan will be used for the purchase of remnants and fabrics.

The group appreciates their lenders because the loan helps them to improve their business activities and quality of life.
