A loan helped a member to buy candy and lollipops to sell.


Trevo 4 Group's story

The leader of the group is Mauricia; she is the first in the picture. She is married and came from the northeast in search of better living and working conditions. She managed to rent a small house in a very poor neighborhood and started selling sweets and ice cream.

After a lot of effort and dedication, she set up a small candy store in the backyard of her home. She has a dream of setting up a large candy store and having her own home. The loan will be used for the purchase of candy and lollipops.

The group is made up of six members who need their business activities to support their families. They thank their lenders, as the loan helps in improving their activities and quality of life.

In this group: Socorro , Mauricia , Vanessa , Elisangela , Regivaldo , Tatiana
