Sitawi makes a socio-environmental loan for Coperjunho

In June, Sitawi carried out another loan in the southern region of Brazil. The recipient was Coperjunho, Cooperativa Agroindustrial 8 de Junho in the city of Laranjeiras do Sul, Paraná, which works with government programs, events, contracts with the Federal University of Fronteira Sul and a private school, in addition to sales in retail markets in the region.

Sitawi's socio-environmental loan aims to provide more working capital to fund payroll, farmers and debt restructuring. The socio-environmental impact will come from two fronts: income generation for settlers and organic production of most of the cooperative's products.

Regarding income generation for settlers, the impact is direct. Small rural producers are suppliers of the cooperative, focusing on two main product lines: tubers and vegetables. Currently, it generates around 30 direct jobs and has more than 40 associated farming families that indirectly benefit from the sale of organic production.
