The data, ascertained in a survey by the Development Bank of Latin America ascertained by InfoMoney, show the vulnerability of Brazilians in a particularly difficult moment. With the Covid-19 pandemic showing no signs of abating, few have a sufficient emergency reserve to face a possible loss of income with peace . . .
