A loan helped a member to buy a circular machine, a sander, and a saw.


Samabaia Group's story

Luiz lives with his wife and two children in a modest neighborhood. He left the state of his birth when he was very young and arrived in São Paulo without a job and lived in a room with his brother.

He began to work as a mason's assistant; and, with much hardship and faith, went about studying and observing the masters of the trade. Currently, he has been in construction for more than 20 years and says that he very much enjoys what he does.

Because of his great work, he is always recommended to new customers. With the loan, he is going to buy a circular machine, a sander, and a saw.

The group thanks its lenders.
