People.. this is new way to rescue the most poor regions on Brazil.. a continental land with so many differences.. the 7th GDP, but more than 60% of the population under the misery conditions. So, producing businees in the regions we can raise conditions not only to raise the poorest people but also help the Happy Child in Recife. Go, visit us and do not delay.. there is a lot of smiles for us to raise again!!!
