In the next year, if we replicate the network in 13 states, we will be 65 people in the core team, 130 main contacts in communities and the network of 1,950 entrepreneurs and businessmen/women.
To replicate the system we are planning to use the tools of a network and sponsor, that is, each team will sponsor 3 cities, be trained and after a certain time they will in turn sponsor 3 other cities.
