At the end of last year, sitawi made its most recent loan to CIES (Centro de Integração de Educação e Saúde). This organization provides high-quality, low-cost healthcare to needy communities and has attended to 57,000 people over the past 3 years.
CIES works primarily through mobile health vans to close the gap in the public health system between basic healthcare provision and more specialized hospital treatment. The organization also works with companies to provide healthcare to workers’ families and communities, as well as educating its users in prevention, both in terms of information and early diagnosis.
The loan for CIES is for R$200,000, which will allow CIES to expand its operations into a new city in rural São Paulo state and a favela in Rio de Janeiro. These two projects aim to provide over 30,000 appointments and examinations.

No final do ano passado, a sitawi concedeu o seu mais recente empréstimo social para o CIES (Centro de Integração de Educação e Saúde). Esta organização proporciona atendimento médico de alta qualidade e baixo custo para comunidades carentes e já atendeu 57.000 pessoas nos últimos 3 anos.
O CIES trabalha primeiramente através de suas vans da saúde para preencher a lacuna existente no sistema público de saúde entre prestação de serviços básicos e tratamento hospitalar especializado. A organização também trabalha com empresas, proporcionando atendimento médico às famílias dos trabalhadores e comunidades, assim como educando seus usuários na prevenção, tanto em termos de informação de doenças como em diagnóstico precoce das mesmas.
O empréstimo para o CIES foi de R$200.000, o que permitirá a organização expandir suas operações em São José dos Campos, na zona rural de São Paulo e também no Complexo do Alemão, uma favela no Rio de Janeiro. Estes dois projetos visam atender mais de 30.000 consultas e exames.

The loan of R$100,000 was made within the scope of our partnership with Artemisia and aims to anticipate the takings from the sale of stands at the fair organized by the organization every year.
