A loan helped a member to buy chemicals in general, straighteners and relaxers.


As Bonitas Group's story

Tereza, the second one in the photo, is the group's leader. She is single and lives with her brother.

After becoming unemployed, Tereza scraped together whatever money she had and decided to invest in hair products. She began selling to the salons in the region, and with the help of Banco do Povo she bought a larger quantity of products and was able to expand her coverage. The loan will be used to buy chemicals in general, straighteners and relaxers.

The group is grateful for the investors' support.

In this group: Ana , Tereza, Samuel, Gilka
