A loan helped a member to buy new equipment for her nail salon, chairs, nail polishes, cotton, and acetone.

Pra Frente Group's story

Gessimar, the fourth person in the photo, is a strong, determined woman who lives in São Paulo. She is married and lives with her husband and three children in a rented house.

She has a small nail salon in her garage at home. Unfortunately, after a heavy rain, her house flooded and she lost practically all of the equipment in her salon.

In addition to doing manicures, she also makes crafts to sell and supplement her income. But the income from crafts alone is not enough to support her family. She will use the loan to buy new equipment for her space, chairs, nail polishes, cotton, and acetone, so that she can see clients again.

Her dream is to reopen her salon and give her children the life they deserve.

The group members are grateful for investors' support.
