Imperial I Group's story

This is Maria (brown jacket), a hardworking woman who makes a living running a small grocery store selling traditional foods from northeastern Brazil. She managed to open it years ago with a lot of determination and diligence. With this source of income, she supports her husband and children.

She requested a loan that will allow her to buy flour, sun-dried meat, juices, and cheeses.

She dreams of making her small grocery store into a general store.
