Ourolac builds chapel in Ouroana

The city, which is part of the district of Rio Verde – Goiás, has approximately 2,000 inhabitants.

And that’s when Ourolac, having one of its premises, social responsibility, the good to customers and society, especially for being present and employing people living in the surrounding area, the company decided to build the chapel and leave it for the neighborhood as a local good.
