Azul Da Cor Do Mar Group's story

Francisca, the third one in the photo, is the group leader. She is married and has a son. She always had an entrepreneurial spirit, always worked for herself. Unfortunately some businesses didn't work out, but she never gave up. She is very hardworking and determined, and today, with a lot of effort, she has a small restaurant. She has been a client of Banco do Povo (People's Bank) for four years and the loans have been helping her maintain her restaurant and attend to her customers. Her goal is to renovate the restaurant and to open a pizzeria in the future. The loan will be to buy staple items like rice, beans and oil.
The group would like to thank the investors, as the loan is helping them improve their businesses and quality of life.
