Bank Director Marcio Alaor Is Honored By The San Antonio Community Of Mount

Brazil is one of those countries that is overlooked and undervalued. When Brazil is brought up in conversation the city of Rio or the city of Sao Paulo come to mind, but Brazil is much more than both of those cities. Brazil is a delicate mixture of the old world and the new world. The old world still exists in the small towns and cities that make up the heart of the country.
Small cities like San Antonio, a small city in the southeastern part of Brazil gives the country the flavor of forgotten times. The population of that small city is a little more than 27,000, but it makes a lot of noise throughout the country. The noise comes from more than 50 fireworks factories that give the people a place to work.
Those old fireworks factories still employ people not machines to do most of the work, and the pay is less than any worker in the United Sates is paid. The people depend on each other for help when times get tough, and Brazil is going through one of those tough times now.
Thanks to people like Marcio Alaor, a hometown boy that went on to big and better things, the people of San Antonio know they will get through the recession and the inflation without losing everything. Bank Director and Vice President Marcio Alaor has made it his mission to help the city survive during the economic downturn. Alaor not only helps people get payroll loans, but he also donates his money and time to city causes.
The mayor of San Antonio, Luís Antônio Resende, thinks Marcio is an angel. When the town converted one of the old fireworks warehouses into a shopping mecca and added a food court, the mayor wanted to honor Alaor. The food court needed a name and Resende said there was no better name that Alaor in his small city. Alaor has supported the people and the city, and it was time for the city to support Marcio.
When Alaor got the news that his city, the city where, as a boy, he started shining shoes was going to name a food court after him he didn’t know what to say. But he did know. He was filled with gratitude and promised he would never stop helping the city where he got started in business. Alaor said he would continue to offer his services as a bank officer, and he would also continue to volunteer so the city could continue to growth in spite of the challenges.
The people of San Antonio are like the people in all small Brazilian cities. They help each other in any way they can.
