Deus E Fiel X Group's story

Silveria, the third one in the photo in a striped t-shirt, is the group leader. She has two children and two granddaughters. They live in São Paulo in a house on the periphery.

She started working on coffee plantations when she was still a child in order to help her parents. She left their house in northeastern Brazil when she was still young and went to São Paulo to try to find new life opportunities. When she became an adult, she got married and started working in stores as a saleswoman. After she got pregnant with her second child, she separated from her husband and had to leave her job because she couldn't leave her children alone.

She therefore decided to start working from home, making and selling jewelry. The income she earned from selling jewelry wasn't a lot, but she used it to attend to her family's basic needs. She decided to expand her business and started making ice cream too, thus managing to earn more to support her household.

Today she has a small dessert shop in the garage of her house where she sells sweets and savory pastries she makes.

Her irregular income and the lack of access to banks were the primary disadvantages that prevented her from accessing a commercial bank loan. This loan is an opportunity she has never had before, and she needs it to invest in flour, milk, eggs, salt, and sugar in order to continue producing merchandise to sell.

She dreams that her children and grandchildren will have a comfortable life.

The group would like to thank the investors.
