A loan helped a member to buy equipment and accessories (cases, film, cameras).


Jesus É O Caminho Group's story

Luiz is the group's leader. He works in cell phone and security camera technical service. In the photo he is the one wearing the cap.

He has been working for six years on his own because he became unemployed and then invested his money in gadgets. Since he always enjoyed repairing electronics, he took a course to specialize and refine his skills. He lives with his mother and his sister, and rents the space where his store is located. He will use the loan from Banco do Povo to buy accessories (cases, film, cameras). His personal dream is to have his own house in a different community from where he lives, because the one he lives in is very violent. His professional dream is to have a larger store with employees and to sell a wider variety of electronics.

Oberdan sells all kinds of bread; Eudes sells acai and sorbets; and Eduardo has a small grocery store.
