Rio Grande Do Sul Group's story

The Rio Grande do Sul Group is a client of the Banco do Povo Crédito Solidário (BPCS) and would like to count on the support of investors to improve not only their quality of life, but also their sales.

Eliene works with electronics and the loan will help her to buy parts to repair products. Maria has a small sewing shop and will use the loan to buy woven fabrics in general. Marianne works as a hair dresser and the loan will allow her to buy equipment and beauty products for her clients' hair treatments.

Gesanilda is the group's leader. She works selling fresh products door-to-door to help support her family. The loan will help her to buy corn, hearts of palm and jelly to increase her sales. She likes what she does and has many years of experience. In the future she plans to have her own store for breakfast products.

The whole group thanks the investors for their attention.
