Cor De Prata Group's story

Marisete is the group's leader. She is married and has three children. In order to help with the household expenses, she has a salon in the back yard of her house where she works as a hairdresser. She also sells clothing. The Banco do Povo loan has helped a great deal in maintaining her stock of clothing and hair products. She is very hard working and focused and dreams of having her salon in a more visible location and better serving her customers.

The loan will be used to buy summer clothing such as skirts, dresses and tank tops, as well as moisturizing creams for the salon.

The group is made up of entrepreneurial neighbors who also very much need working capital so they can replenish merchandise in general. They are very grateful to the investors because the loan helps them improve their businesses and their quality of life.
