To sell the company’s microfinance products, our so-called “Credit Counselors” (Orientadores de Crédito) go door-to-door, visiting the communities and neighborhoods where our clients operate their businesses and make the direct sale and orientation. Apart from microfinance products and modern payment tools, our mission is to transform the society, companies and people´s lives, strengthening development and citizenship.
