In an interview with the program A Voz do Brazil, the president of Caixa, Pedro Guimarães, reported today (28) that more than 1.5 million people have already applied for the new microcredit announced earlier by the bank.
With offers ranging from BRL 300 to BRL 1,000 for individuals and BRL 1,500 to BRL 3,000 for individual microentrepreneurs (MEIs), the line can be requested directly by app or by Caixa branches.
To carry out the operation, users of the Caixa Tem application must update the version of the program for security reasons, said Guimarães. The credit request is currently highlighted, right on the first screen of Caixa Tem.
“We are impressed. We expect 5 million people, but at the speed we had today, in a few days we will have a higher number. Remembering that there is a need for a 10-day credit analysis,” she said.
Guimarães also clarified that even people with negative registration in credit protection agencies can request the special line.
The president of Caixa also spoke about new housing credit measures for people with disabilities. Caixa offers financing for this group of 4.5% per year + reference rate (TR), with a minimum income of R$ 3 thousand per month. Pedro Guimarães explained that, in addition to the acquisition, the credit can also be used for renovations and remodeling of properties already acquired. For this type of financing, the maximum amount is R$ 50 thousand.
