A loan helped a member to buy modeling clay in assorted colors.


João Candido Group's story

The group leader is Cleuza, the third one in the photo. She is married and has a child. Due to her age, she was unable to find employment, so she decided to work independently. Unfortunately, her husband was unable to work because he had health problems. It was up to her to provide for the household. So with help from a female friend, she started making crafts. Then she began to receive orders. She is very hardworking and tenacious. She makes cookie jars, household decorations, and souvenirs out of modeling clay. She dreams of having a studio to have more space to work and fill her orders. The loan will be for buying modeling clay in assorted colors.

The group members are grateful for their investors' support, as the loan helps them to improve their businesses and standard of living.
