O Retorno I Group's story

Maria, second in the photo from left to right, is the leader of the group and is an honest, hardworking woman who is passionate about her work.

She lives in a small house with her daughter and her sister. She has many goals in life. For three years in a row, she sells cosmetics in order to help with the household expenses. Owing to the COVID-19 crisis, her sister became unemployed, and currently Maria's business activity is the only source of income for the household. Her daughter has become her main motivation for continuing to fight.

Maria requests a loan in order to buy perfumes, skin creams, face creams, and makeup, so as to replenish her stock and obtain more income. In the near future, she plans to open her own cosmetics shop and provide a source of employment.

She dreams of being able to help her daughter to finish college.

The group thanks their lenders.
