A loan helped a member to buy thread, hot glue, and colored markers.


Sempre Guerreiras Group's story

Rosane (the woman with the red mask) is 48 years old. She is married and lives on the eastern outskirts of São Paulo. She is a woman who does not let things get the best of her. Despite the adversity in her life and around her, she strives to get ahead.

For five years, she has been working at producing and selling crafts made from recycled products, using PET plastic bottles and glass jars. She also sells confections and candies to add to her income.

Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, she made good sales, and with the situation her sales have fallen steeply because she is unable to go out to offer her products for fear of spreading the virus. She hopes that she can revitalize her business with this loan.

She is requesting the loan to buy thread, hot glue, colored markers, and other products to resume selling her crafts.
Her dream is for the situation to improve and for everyone to stay well.

The group thanks the investors.
