Amo Muito provides nationwide access to a wide range of accessories including handbags, belts, earrings, scarves and t-shirts.
Amo Muito, a two year old company based in Rio de Janeiro, will use the investment to consolidate and grow its position as a provider of branded women’s accessories.

It will help us to structure and grow the business and enable us to take advantage of the opportunities in this booming marketplace. We are an important player in the accessories segment in the Brazilian market and with Ideiasnet we will expand our reach and invest for the future.”
“Ideiasnet has a strong commitment to the digital commerce market in Brazil and this investment leverages our experience in digital commerce and women’s content” said Sami Haddad, Ideiasnet CEO. Ideiasnet currently has investments in online payments (MoIP), ecommerce storefronts (CiaShop), online shopping (Zura) and the women’s portal (Bolsa de Mulher).
With this investment, the management team led by Sami Haddad (CEO), Everson Lopes (Managing Director) and Alexandra de Haan (Chief Financial Officer) furthers its commitment to a new phase in Ideiasnet’s history.
