Fraternidade Group's story

Mercedes is Peruvian, has 2 children, and lives in a rented space in São Miguel, São Paulo.

She has been in Brazil for 3 years. She came in search of new financial opportunities. In her country of origin, she was in need and her work selling haberdashery was often sabotaged.

She arrived in Brazil with the help of relatives and soon set up a clothes and haberdashery stall near the bus terminal and it worked very well. She got many customers and a good monthly income. Besides the stall, she also teaches Spanish classes online.

She is applying for this credit to invest in autumn clothes and also to buy a new notebook [computer] to improve the quality of classes.

She dreams of setting up a store and also learning how to better organize her finances. The group is grateful to the investors.
