“The Acreditar organization became part of my life, when I was unemployed in 2011. I started selling cosmetics, but I was not able to supply products under immediate delivery to the customers, it was a single process. Then a friend of mine came to my house and I started to talk to her about my struggles, that I had this dream of investing in my own business, but I could not achieve it. It was when my friend Gracielle spoke to me about the Acreditar organization, because she was already a customer of the Acreditar and she told me how good it was, because in addition to the loan provided by Acreditar, it also gives support for you not to lose your money, and advises us as how to make the right investment. My friend gave me credit agent Lucimar phone’s number, I called her to schedule a visit, I was very excited and took my first loan, and business took off. In addition to transform my business, Acreditar also transformed my life. Today I do not sell cosmetics only, but also I sell offal, and I have two people reselling sandals and cosmetics for me. So Acreditar turned my life around and it can turn yours too. Not to mention that the organization is formed by highly qualified professionals to assist us. Thanks to everyone who is part of the Acreditar family.” Marta de Melo – Acreditar Entrepreneur
