When the plans to cultivate the interior of Brazil had been in existence for almost 100 years and the government still had not succeeded in implementing a policy that would encourage that development, in the 1920s private investors decided that it would be better not to wait for the government to start the development of Brazils interior but to do it themselves. British entrepreneurs from the company 'Brazilian plantations Ltd' were prepared to invest their money in the regional and agricultural development of one of the southern states of Brazil, PParaná. The colonizers founded the city in 1938 as an operating base for the further cultivation of the region.
