Brazil Success Stories
Brazil. Arlete changed her career to have more time with her family. As a result, she was able to complete her MBS and now she wants to become a Success Ambassador.
My name is Arlete Luzia Strey, I live in Anápolis, Goiás, Brazil. I have an Undergraduate and Postgraduate degree in Pedagogy and I was a teacher for 15 years. I knew about the Interweave Solutions and the MBS course by Success Ambassador Sidnei do Nascimento. I decided to take this course to learn how to become self-reliant and develop the tools to become more organized, and be more successful with my beauty parlor. In 2014, my daughters were teenagers and I felt the necessity to be more present in their lives, so I decided to make a change in my career by taking a hairdressing and hair aesthetics course.
Today I have my own beauty parlor, called I9hair Salon, in the garage of my house, and in this way I can have time with my daughters and my husband, take care of my plants, and study. This course helped me to have more control of my business and to improve some areas of my life, mainly the financial side, recreation with my family, and also expanded my vision towards my community, making me understand better the needs of everyone around me. Now it is time to keep going towards success! I really want to share with other people everything I’ve learned with MBS, being a SUCCESS Ambassador!
“(…) the MBS course from Interweave Solutions gave me an even clearer vision of how I can serve the community (…)”
My name is Pedro Henrique Baptista de Oliveira, from Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. In 1996 I started my path in the food industry by taking a course in the area, from a school called Escola Técnica Federal de Química do Rio de Janeiro. At the end of the course, I decided to expand my knowledge and I got another degree in Food Engineering from Universidade Federal de Viçosa (UFV-MG).
Before graduating I was approved in a public contest for the Instituto de Laticínios Cândido Tostes, one of the most renowned institutions in the dairy industry in Latin America. However, this was not enough for me and I decided to work as an independent consultant, thus managing to set up more than 10 food and dairy factories. With this I discovered the incredible world of ‘”turn-key” project engineering, that is, a new concept in contracting services. With this, I realized that many farmers suffered from the difficulty of building a large masonry factory. Then, as an “opinion maker” in my area, in 2017 I received a contact via SKYPE from a company in Israel that presented me with a container cheese factory project. I realized the great opportunity to help small farmers to have their agribusiness so I created the startup called MODULAGRO. These are ecological, intelligent, easily assembled, and affordable modular projects that enable small producers and rural communities to have their own space for growing and producing food. Together with this project, we created the MODULAGRO Food Bank, which allows the reuse of vegetables that are lost between the field and the consumer, thus avoiding a loss of 30% to 40% of the harvest. This reused material is processed and transformed into jams, soups, juices, broths, dehydrated products, etc. that are supplied to social organizations, low-income communities, homeless people, nursing homes, etc. Even with the academic background I already have, and with the business in progress, the MBS course at Interweave Solutions gave me an even clearer vision of how I can serve the community and, along with MODULAGRO’s projects, change the lives of so many people. In order to do so, the next step will be to complete the Success Ambassador course to carry out my project.
Brazil. “MBS shows that we cannot give up, on the contrary, it strengthens our desire to achieve self-reliance, a better quality of life, and fulfill our dreams.”
My name is Eliene Silva, I live in Sobral, Ceará, Brazil. I am married and I have two children that I am very proud of. My oldest daughter is a Pedagogue and my youngest son is studying Law. My husband works as a General Services Clerk and he is an excellent professional in the area of car and motorcycle restoration, and he wants to work in this area. We are a simple and humble family, and we have always believed that family is the essence of a life of honesty and character.
Currently I am working in the area of beauty and wellness selling products and natural supplements, providing a better quality of life to people. I really enjoy dealing with people, and this is an area in which I have sought specialization. When I worked as a Health Agent, I felt fulfilled in being able to help people and, while living in a low income community, I always saw an opportunity to bring these people a word of comfort, or some form of assistance.
I met the MBS program through Success Ambassador Isaías Santos, who introduced me to the program, and I soon realized that this was what I needed to make my dream come true. MBS complemented what I had always been looking for, and as a Success Ambassador I intend to help the young people in my community to have a purpose in life, and to move forward believing that everyone deserves success. I live the reality in my community that does not have an adequate policy in this regard. Families are without any support and are always facing hardships.
The MBS enchanted me from the beginning. But I particularly liked the “bicycle wheel”. This lesson uniquely shows us that some businesses will not succeed because of lack of planning and strategy. It also shows that there needs to be balance in all areas of our lives. Many people give up on their businesses, give up on their families, and even their own lives, because they fail to plan and find balance.
The MBS shows that we cannot give up; on the contrary, it strengthens our desire to achieve self-reliance, a better quality of life, and fulfill our dreams. I am putting into practice the idea of always saving, “even if it is just one or two coins”, having more leisure hours with my family, taking care of my health, in short, living better. And I am very happy to be a Success Ambassador and my purpose is to train more Success Ambassadors in my region. At this point I feel very secure to have the support of Interweave Solutions, in the sense of being an official representative, and presenting myself as such to other organizations, communities, and government agencies, which is something I intend to do soon.
I thank Ambassador Isaías for introducing me to the MBS Program, and I also thank the founders of Interweave Solutions because they came up with the idea and decided to share it with everyone.
Brazil. Erick Ferreira lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and intends to apply what he learned from the MBS course to his personal and professional life. He works in the area of Private Security, is a Missionary Pastor of the Assembly of God, and also works as a Chaplain, giving religious and social assistance in prisons, hospitals, homes for the elderly, and other institutions. He intends to be a Success Ambassador and take MBS to the people he comes in contact with.
“First of all, I want to thank the opportunity granted by Interweave Solutions, and say that this program has been a turning point in my life. For me it is a visionary program that most of the time can reach people with no perspective of growth in their business, going bankrupt or shutting down their business. With the MBS program, we are impacted by achieving self-sufficiency and, our success story begins when we put into practice all the principles taught in this course. I began to notice a radical change in all the areas mentioned, and by applying what I learned, I had amazing results. Now I have a more programmed, organized, visionary life, and I am already reaping the first fruits. I can say that, taking this course, was a unique moment in my life to obtain self-sufficiency and have a success story!”
Brazil. Sidnei do Nascimento who lives in the city of Anápolis, Brazil, is going to carry out an old project thanks to the MBS course. He also became a Success Ambassador and intends to take this project to more people who want to realize their dreams.
“My name is Sidnei do Nascimento and I am a Portuguese Language Teacher and have a Masters degree in Education and Science. The MBS course has had a great impact on my life because I have always wanted to have my own business, but I didn’t have a direction on how to start it. I have failed many times. Through understanding the 6 P’s of business I came across an old dream. A while ago I created a school for human development called A.S.A.S. School of Winners. I found the MBS course to be a very important project that leads us to make improvements in the eight areas of our lives, which leads to a complete change. I also finished the Success Ambassador training, and I now have the mission to bring knowledge to as many people as possible, so that they can also achieve self-reliance through this wonderful course.”
Brazil. Francisco Andrey from Curitiba, Brasil, put in practice the teaching from the MBS course. Now he is able to save money, spend more time with his family, sort out his priorities, and is ready to open a school where he plans to grow even more as a Success Ambassador teaching everyone the MBS program.
“My name is Francisco Andrey Ádamo and I work as an Assistant in a business where I am a Financial Management and Theology student. I have always dreamed of having a technical school but I didn’t have much knowledge on how to do it. When I found Interweave Solutions I realized that my dream would come true. The MBS showed me how I can break barriers and achieve success step by step.
During the course my head was rushing with ideas and I decided now to waste any more time and put into practice everything that I was learning. I started saving money, learned how to manage my time, separate what is a priority in my life, be more present with my family, and make notes of my expenses and income. Now I am ready to open my school and I plan to teach the MBS course to others.
The best part of it all was having the support of Interweave Solutions. I felt valued because, in every call, my mentor would always encourage me to finish my project, and she also showed me how I can make a difference as a Success Ambassador. Now it’s time to follow the path as a Success Ambassador and help others have a life of self-reliance.”
Brazil. “My name is Bianca Rodrigues, I live in Goiânia GO Brazil, I have a degree in Pedagogy with specialization in Psychopedagogy and I am currently attending a graduate school in Social Psychology and Anthropology at Faculdade Metropolitana de Ribeirão Preto. I have been through five pregnancies, but unfortunately, due to cytomegalovirus problems, medical errors, and spontaneous abortion, I lost four babies, a boy and three girls. I lived many moments of loneliness, hopelessness, physical and emotional pain, and also helplessness. At that time, my son was held back in school, and also lived several moments of sadness, depression and hopelessness. I am currently married, but have been through two divorces that left my son and I financially helpless.
I am now 50 years old and have always tried to subsidize my financial life through my work, but I have failed. My only son, who has managed to survive these difficulties, is now 33 years old. Because of my inability to support myself and also my son, I have caused him an insecurity that keeps him away from me and makes him believe that I am not capable of providing for us. He currently lives with my mother and trusts her a lot. But this causes me great suffering, a huge feeling of failure and impotence. No matter how much I have looked for new opportunities in the job market, I have failed time after time, which causes me more suffering and feelings of disapproval as a woman, mother and human being capable of maintaining her own life, financially speaking.
I have already invested in courses, lectures, conferences, and many books trying to be well with myself and to be successful in my profession as a pedagogist, but everything has been a failure on a financial level. I went through many necessities, restrictions, and suffered deeply hearing my son say he was hungry and I didn’t have a single penny to give him at that moment. There were many hopeless years and I felt very angry at myself, at life, at God, and at my parents for being better than me at financially supporting my son.During this time I was working in a private school, but my income was not enough to provide for both of us, not even to maintain the basics.All this caused me a lot of pain and an overwhelming feeling of helplessness, and these traumatic moments of loss have also contributed to my emotional and financial imbalance. I know what it is like to feel my stomach burning with hunger, seeing various establishments around me selling food when I couldn’t feed myself because I did not have enough money for it.During this journey I met Cynthya Freitas who became a great friend. A while ago, in a time of great need, she offered me material help, and recently, she introduced me to Interweave Solutions’ MBS course.
Self-reliance is all that I have ever sought for my life and for my family, and it was with great satisfaction that I finished the first phase of the MBS course. I feel that I am starting a new phase of success in my life, because I intend to put into practice everything I have learned in each unit of the course. I intend to organize myself financially, save every day “even if it’s just one or two coins”, improve my quality of life, take notes, plan, and above all, seek support in self-reliance groups as well as the support of the Interweave Solutions team. I feel that the next steps will come with the hope that from this moment on I will be able to achieve self-reliance and will also be able to teach several people how to achieve it for themselves. I will make my failure my success, and maybe that of many people as well. I have a great interest in working with groups and I want to start the Success Ambassador training as soon as possible. I want to show this path of success to other people as soon as the pandemic allows. After all, everyone deserves to succeed, everyone has skills and talents that need to be developed. This is my goal as Success Ambassador for Interweave Solutions.”

“My name is Joana Venância Barros Oliveira, I am 35 years old, I am from Maranhão, Brazil and I have always fought to achieve my goals. I am married and nowadays, I live in Padre Bernardo, Goiás. It was very important for me to have participated in the MBS course. I have learned many principles that I am now applying in my business. The practical lessons of Administration are excellent.

This course has enabled me to accomplish great things, and I have the greatest pleasure in indicating to everyone that they need to be self-reliant. The MBS course has led me to a high level of knowledge in eight very important areas of my life. If you want, you can also be more self-reliant; all you have to do is take the MBS course.”
Brazil. Isaías Santos works with perfume sales in Forquilha in Ceará, Brazil. He decided to take the MBS course to improve his sales and to learn how to better manage his business. Today he feels confident with his current business, he is growing in several areas of his life, and intends to participate more in his community. We are convinced that Isaías will soon become a Success Ambassador. Here is his testimony:
My name is Isaías da Silva Santos and I live in Forquilha in Ceará, Brazil. Taking the MBS course at Interweave Solutions was a game changer for me. I am currently working with imported perfumes sales. The practical concepts that I learned in the course will take me to a higher level. The things I learned in Unity 2 about knowing my competition, knowing and valuing my clients, and how to promote my business, are things that I already added to my business. The principles found in Unit 4 about Paperwork and Home Budgeting are things that I didn’t practice. Today I know that I can’t touch the money of my business; I need to save money regularly and I need to have a budget for myself and another one for my business. Income Statement, Cash Flow Projection were things that I lacked. Not to mention the improvement I have made in other areas of my life. The course awakened in me the desire to start a new business in the music industry since I am a musician. I will start teaching young people in my church and in my community how to play the guitar. If I apply the principles that I learned I will be successful. I am grateful to Interweave Solutions for this opportunity and I hope to become a Success Ambassador so that I can share this knowledge with many people.
