The following information could be helpful to better explain Mayuto Correa’s career.
Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to parents that had just become a middleclass by moving from a family own farm at Rio State to the big city, suburb of São Gonçalo . There, Simonides Correa, his father, became the administrator of the large farm, Porto Novo, which is a town, now.
Simonides was a men of many trades, easier to be described by saying that there were just a few things he didn’t know how to do. Living in the new farm, with 40 bedrooms, surroundings were as before, but Simonides invested his money and time in business like candy facture, produce market, restaurant, painting contracting company, surplus sales, just to name a few. After his wife died, he decided to help the poor people of the largest slum in the world, Favela da Rocinha, in Rio de Janeiro. He secured the family with Mayuto’s uncle, Maurilho, in São Gonçalo and went on to bring schools, light, water, police station, health post and church to Rocinha.
