Problem

99% of the enterprises in Brazil are micro and small businesses and more than half are run by women. This businesses represent 57% of the national GDP and are responsible for 54% of the formal jobs in the country. Yet, we still have a high mortality rate among microbusinesses and a high informality rate. Aliança empowers microentrepreneurs in low-income communities so they can invest in their entrepreneurial journey.
