A total of 131,400 operations were carried out, totaling 12.3 billion Brazilian reais (US$ 6.6 billion) in loans. The volume was 36.6% higher than in the previous year.

We made use of the moment to continue supporting the productive sector, so as to simplify processes and guarantee access to credit.”
