As Petalas De Jesus Group's story

The Pétalas de Jesus group is a client of the Banco do Povo Crédito Solidário (BPCS). It is comprised of four entrepreneurial women who work in the Diadema community of Sao Paulo. The women are hard-working and accomplished in their work, and it is through their work that they contribute extra income and help their families.

Petala is the group's leader. She has a small shop and helps her mother with the household expenses. With the loan, she is going to buy thread, fabrics, and notions to make clothing for sale. Her dream for the future is to expand her store and hire employees.

Aparecida and Eliana sell cosmetics door-to-door and are going to buy more merchandise. Mavila has a small hair salon and is going to buy hair products. Vilhany is a beautician and will buy personal care products for use with her customers.

The group is grateful for the strength and dedication of the investors.

In this group: Aparecida , Eliana , Mavila , Pétala, Vilhany
