A loan helped a member to buy an electric saw.


Vinte E Nove Group's story

This group's leader is Erisvaldo, the man in the blue top. He lives with his wife and mother in a simple house in São Miguel.

Despite the lack of infrastructure and high levels of marginalisation where he lives, he has always been strong-willed and worked hard. He works as a gardener and in construction to support his family.

He is requesting this loan to buy an electric saw so that he can work more quickly.

The group members are very grateful to the investors for this opportunity.

In this group: Arthur , Erisvaldo, Edilson , Sheila
