Santo Antonio do Monte Honors the Vice President of BMG, Marcio Alaor

Marcio Alaor is the vice president of Banco Minas Gerais. He was born and raised in the town of Santo Antonio do Monte. At one time, he worked as a cobbler in order to provide for his family. Through his hard work, he was able to go to university and make a career for himself. Over the years, Marcio did not forget his hometown. He has been involved in different projects that are geared towards improving his community’s livelihoods. During the 2014 annual Santo Antonio do Monte Agricultural exhibition Marcio was paid homage.
The new food court that was set up in the town was named after him. The Alaor Marcio Araujo Food Court was inaugurated during the 33rd agricultural exhibition. Marcio, who has been a huge supporter of the city especially the rural area, was presented with a plaque where his attributes were listed. Residents, politicians and members of the local authorities attended the event. In the past, the food court used to be a grain warehouse.
The annual event, which ran from August 21st to 24th August, brought in media attention to the city that is known for agriculture. Marcio has created projects that have boosted the city’s infrastructure as well as quality of life in the town and rural area. Luis Antonio Resene was among the guest speakers and was quick to list the contributions that Marcio has made to the city.
Marcio received the plaque in the presence of his family and expressed his gratitude to the town. He was quick to add that he did not expect the honor as all he has done for the city was a means of showing gratitude to the community that has made him into the man he is today. Marcio praised the residents for the contributions they have made and the support they have shown both him and BMG. He urged those living away from the town to remember their roots and help in building and improving the town. Marcio thanked the town for honoring him and emphasized on the importance of honoring community members while still alive. He hopes that more members of the communities will be honored for their contributions to the town.
Santo Antonio do Monte is the largest milk producer in West Central. Despite having little land for agriculture, the town has thrived due to the improved transport, technology and communication. The rural area is responsible for the growth of the town. A lot of achievements have been noted and farmers continue looking for more ways to increase productivity. The president of the rural union, Vimar Octavian, attended the inauguration. He said that the support that BMG and Marcio have accorded the farmers would create room for more developments.
