Alpha E Omega Iv Group's story

The Aplha e Ômega IV group belongs to the Banco do Povo Crédito Solidário (BPCS, People's Bank - Credit in Solidarity). The group is formed by four women who live and work in Mauá, São Paulo. Diana works selling makeup, and her loan will be used to buy brushes, makeup, and moisturizers for her customers' beauty treatments. Isaltina has a small snack shop, and with the loan she is going to buy sweets, savory pastries, and soft drinks. Rosana has sold cosmetics door-to-door for more than two years and needs the loan to replace merchandise and orders placed by her customers.
Maria Lucia is the group leader. She is married and has children and a small used clothing store. She is a hardworking, enterprising person who helps her family through her work. She is asking for the loan to buy clothing and shoes; she is going to have sales to attend to more customers in the area. The entire loan will be invested in working capital; the group would like to thank the investors and is committed to making payments properly.

In this group: Diana , Isaltina , Maria , Rosana
