Alto Relevo Group's story

The group Alto Relevo has been a client of Banco do Povo Crédito Solidário for 5 years. They all met in the same neighborhood where they work in Santo André in São Paulo.
Aislan makes hair accessories, Edivan is a hair dresser, Eliana sells Yakult yougurt, Isaque is a hair dresser and Juliana sells silver jewelry.
Maria is the leader of the group. She is 58 and she is divorced with two children. She's worked as a hair dresser for more than 30 years. Her activity is special because she is able to support her family with it. Maria needs this credit to pay suppliers and to buy products such as moisturizers and hair dye. With the extra income she will buy more products and equipment. In the future, she would like to have her own salon because she needs to pay somewhere at the location where she currently works.
Maria's dream is to have her own home, as she is currently renting. The group would like to tell their investors that theyt are really thankful for the support they've received and that this credit will significantly help their projects.

In this group: Aislan, Edivan, Eliana, Isaque, Juliana, Maria
