Dança Cigana Group's story

Leandro, the first one in the photo with the red shirt, is the group leader. He is married and has a son. He always liked art and drawing a lot, and to be able to support his family he decided to work as a tattoo artist. He has a small studio in the community where he lives. He dreams of being able to open a new studio in a place with more visibility in order to attract more customers, and he dreams of being able to provide his family with a stable financial life. The loan will be to buy needles and dye for tattoos.
The group has four members who depend on their businesses to support their families. They would like to thank the investors, as the loan is helping them improve their businesses and quality of life.
