Success Stories

As a woman entrepreneur growing her business in Brazil, Monica Cardoso Schimenes de Oliveira has faced many challenges. Becoming active with WEConnect International gave her a network of women who faced similar challenges: It was “like recognizing my life in the lives of so many other businesswomen. It gave me confidence to participate in the certification process,” she said. Once Monica’s company, MCM Brand Group, was certified by WEConnect International in 2015, she and her team began engaging in WEConnect’s business matchmaking and other events to connect with corporate buyers. Her WEConnect International certification and lots of hard work has paid off: she just won a new contract with Dell.
