"I think they would say that I have a good network skills and that I´m a good friend and mentor."

Lina is CEO and a founder of Aliança Empreendedora, a nonprofit organization that supports NGOs and local governments in designing, testing and implementing inclusive business models and projects that stimulate and support entrepreneurship in low-income communities.

She is also co-founder of Impulso Microcredit, a pioneer microcredit organization in Brazil that launched the first crowd-funding platform for investment in low-income micro-entrepreneurs.
