Hi, I'm fundraising for small entrepreneurs that were severely affected by the lock-down during the pandemics in my home town in Niterói, Brazil. Many traditional shops (snack-bars, tailors, artisan crafts etc.) that have existed since I can remember are closing due to decreased revenue during the past lock-downs causing delayed rental payments and salaries. These shops, that usually bring life to the city and a touch of cultural personality as they are small, are facing very challenging times as well as their employees (decent people, working for 30-40 years or so) will also lose their jobs if anything is done immediately to help them. That's why I'm starting this cause to help them, as Government help is basically nonexistent.
The money collected will be used to cover the delayed expenses as well as give these small entrepreneurs some room to start afresh. I have spoken to many of them and came to the conclusion that the amount of money needed will help save 10+ businesses and an average 30 employments.
Thank you so much for making a huge difference in these peoples' lives.
