Vitoria Na Guerra V Group's story

Joseane is the group leader. She is the last one in the photo in a black shirt. She has lived in the Cohab Adventista neighborhood for more than ten years. She has two children and is a hair stylist. She has had a beauty salon in her house for more than ten years. From the time she was young, she always liked doing the hair of family members, so she decided to start her business by attending to people she knew and gradually her customer base increased. With the loan, she is going to do small repairs and to buy products. Her greatest dream is to open a well-structured beauty salon. The group has four women and they would all like to thank the investors. Maria Aparecida is a hair stylist. Maria do Carmo sells meals for takeout. Quele Luiza is manicurist and sells lingerie.

In this group: Joseane, Maria , Quele, Maria Do Carmo
