Fernando's story

Fernando has been a client of the Banco do Povo Crédito Solidário (BPCS, People's Bank - Credit in Solidarity) for seven years. He is married and has a son, and he lives with his family in Diadema, São Paulo. Fernando is someone who is very dedicated to his work and his family. He is the owner of a small market and needs the loan to buy fruit, vegetables, and food to sell. The extra income will allow him to buy more merchandise. Fernando is currently expanding the business, including new products to sell like housewares and shoes.
He and his family dream of buying a house, as they currently live in a rental. Fernando would like to thank the investors for their dedication and help.
