Alaor grew up shining shoes in this small Brazilian city that is known for producing fireworks and milk. It’s a rural town where the men gather daily to talk about the conditions in Brazil, and the women do most, if not all, of the domestic chores. The Brazilians that live in Santo Antonio are not rich, in terms of money, but there are rich in family values and character. Alaor displays those characteristics by donating his time and money to causes that help the town.
The BMG Bank Vice-President still serves the people that needs loans, and he also spends time doing what other bankers fail to do. He cares about his friends and neighbors. And his friends and neighbors care about him.
When the leaders of the town decided to turn one of the vacant warehouses into a town center with a food court everyone in town thought it was a great town improvement. When it came time to name the food court, only one name was mentioned. Marcio Alaor was the only name on the minds of the citizens of Santo Antonio, so the food court was named after him. All the hard work and giving that Alaor has done over the years was rewarded.
R7.com published an article that said, Alaor was speechless when he first heard that the town wanted to honor him that way. But he found the words to tell his friends that he loves and appreciates their recognition and kindness. Alaor told the crowd at the exhibition opening that most people don’t live to see such a great honor. He thanked the people and the city leaders for thinking of him, and he told them he would continue to serve the town in any way he could.
Alaor continues to be generous benefactor, and the residents continue to appreciate all the banker does for them.
