Figueira Grande Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cosmetics to make kits for Mother's Day.

Figueira Grande Group's story

Maria, the lady wearing a blue t-shirt, arrived in São Paulo with her three children and her husband. They came from northeastern Brazil in order to try life in the capital. With some savings that she had, she opened a liquor store; and to augment her income, Maria sold cosmetics.

For a good while it was like this. Today, she is divorced and works only with cosmetics sales, and she has had much success. She has already won prizes and trips for always hitting sales targets.

The loan will be used to buy cosmetics to make kits for Mother's Day. A dream come true for her would be setting up a large cosmetics store.

The group thanks its lenders for the opportunity.
