PROFOR Stories of female ransom in Brazil

The Strengthening Program of Businesses of Inclusion and Communion in Brazil – PROFOR – has many women as protagonists. Many collaborate with their family in various activities and perceive, for the first time, a decent income. Others have managed to get involved as entrepreneurs, generating income for themselves and sometimes for some employees as well.

Decent work also ensures equal access to work for women and men.

From AMU News I-2018 by Lia Guillen

At the head of the Ex-Cola agricultural project in Rio Grande do Norte is a female entrepreneur who, thanks to the start-up capital and the assistance of Profor, she was able to buy a new truck that helped her in her work. The company was born recently, but is following its schedule, from the cultivation of seedlings, up to the collection and sale of the plants. Currently seven families are involved in the business.

Pizza Jane in Bahia is also run by a woman. In this case, solidarity generated more solidarity: the project consultant in charge of this project offered his work for free and helped the businesswoman to form a network of contacts to support her. This is how the collaboration with a designer is born to develop a logo and to organize a crowd funding campaign. Thanks to all this support, she managed to get out of her vulnerable situation and regain confidence and strength to continue her dream.

Ana Rita is also part of the Profor program, realizing her project “Cuidar de Viver”, a social service of accompaniment for elderly or people with disabilities. At the beginning, when she met Profor, the project was just an idea, and then with the help of the trainers, the project started to develop. And after obtaining the different health authorizations, she could begin.

Finally, there is the beauty salon “Graça e Beleza” in Bahia that has had positive results on the financial plan. It was already considered a sustainable business only after 3 months from receiving the capital. The success of the project not only gave a fixed work and a steady income to the owner, previously unemployed and without immediate job prospects. In addition to this, today the activity employs 3 more people with a fixed income.
