A loan helped a member to buy more materials to produce shoes, and to make some repairs to his motorcycle.

Parceria Solidária Group's story

Rodrigo (the second one in the photo from right to left) is the leader of the group. He is blessed with a very supportive wife and two daughters. His wife is unemployed.

Rodrigo sells shoes that he himself makes at the street market. Because the coronavirus, street markets are prohibited in the city where he lives, so he is selling the shoes via WhatsApp. Due to very low demand, he is also working making deliveries, and his wife is making face masks.

With this loan, he will be able to purchase more materials to produce shoes, and make some repairs to his motorcycle so that he will be able to make more deliveries.

He is committed to paying off his loan with the profits he makes. His dream is to build a permanent structure and expand his business, and he also dreams of educating his children.

The group thanks the investors.
