Women of Maranhão Network
It is a collective formed by the social businesses that were incubated, accelerated and graduated by AGIR executed on the Carajás Railroad (Estrada de Ferro Carajás – EFC). The social businesses that make up the Network are formed mainly by women, who marketed products through the EFC passenger train window. With the modernization of the train, in 2015, the windows were closed and these women lost their main source of income. Vale Foundation supported the groups in their reinvention in the face of the new scenario and encouraged network associations. Women of Maranhão Network gains prominence through the dynamization of its productive activities, integrating new groups and gaining new markets.
