Jad Group's story

Jandira is the group's leader (the first person on the right of the photo) and is a strong and determined woman. She, her daughter and her young grandson live in a rented house in São Paulo.

Her daughter lost her job due to the COVID-19 crisis, and since then her small beauty salon (in her garage) has been the main source of income for their family.

As well as cutting hair, she does makeup for weddings and parties and hair styling for brides. She is working for her clients within the regulations and using the required protective equipment. She needs this loan to buy shampoo, skin creams, alcohol gel and face masks.

Jandira's dream is to get through the COVID-19 crisis and to have a separate place from her house for her salon.

The group members are grateful to the investors.
