A loan helped a member to buy new towels and dyes for his beauty salon.


Jovens Empreendedores I Group's story

This group's leader is Paulo, the third person in the photo in the grey top. He is single and lives with his mother and grandmother. He decided to work with hair from a young age, as he strongly identified with this activity. At first, his only customers were his neighbours and acquaintances, but he improved his skills and managed to open a small hair salon at great expense. His dream is to have a bigger space so that he can better serve his customers. He will use the loan to buy new towels and dyes for the salon.

This group has five members who need to work to support their families. They are grateful to the investors, as the loan helps them to improve their work and their quality of life.

In this group: Talita , Paulo , Diego , Rosana , Jose
