Força Maior I Group's story

The group leader is Francislaine. She's the third one in the photo, wearing a black blouse. She has two children and she's divorced. They live in a very poor community. Since she needed to support her household, she started selling bed, dining, and bath goods door to door. Little by little, she diversified her merchandise and increased her clientele. She started a small home goods store. She dreams of being able to open another store and have a stable financial life and enjoy time with her children. The loan will be for buying pots, curtains, and rugs.

Força Maior I group is made up of four members who rely on their businesses to support their families. They thank their investors for their help.
