Agape Iv Group’s story

The members of the Ágape IV group have been friends for eight years and work together. This is the first loan the group applies for at Banco do Povo Crédito Solidário BPCS. Jose, Marinalva, and Rozilda work together for a recycling cooperative.

Valdeci is the group’s leader. He is 50 years old, married, and the father of three children. He lives with his family in the Guaianazes community, in São Paulo. He is a sincere, honest, and hardworking man.

Valdeci picks recyclable materials. As the family’s head, he sustains it through his work. His activity is special because it is his source of income, and he can contribute to cleaning the environment, and help other families.

Valdeci needs the loan to buy a conveyor belt for the cooperative where they work. With this equipment, it will be possible to sort the materials that will be recycled.

In the future, he plans to hire more people, because besides contributing to the protection of the environment, this represents a source of income for many families.

The members of the group feel happy with Kiva’s support, and want to thank them for this opportunity.
